prajna signThis morning I attended the grand opening of the Prajna Temple and the Canadian Wisdom Compassion Centre, in Newmarket, Ontario. The main Prajna Temple is located in Scarborough at Warden and Eglinton. This is a new northern location. They also have a retreat centre in Colborne, Ontario.

The ceremonies began with prayers and walking chanting of “Namo Amito Fo”. This was followed by prayers, prostrations and brief speeches by the presiding bhikshus, circumambulation of the premises while chanting the Da Bai Jing (Great Compassion Dharani), a release of animals, and a vegetarian lunch.
