2024 Hanamatsuri Service

Hanamatsuri, literally flower festival, is celebrated on April 8, commemorating the birth of Siddhartha Gautama. Siddhartha became enlightened as Sakyamuni Buddha and this marks the release of sentient beings from suffering and sorrow.

This year, Hanamatsuri Service will take place at 12 noon at Seattle Koyasan Buddhist Temple. You can also join the service via Zoom. Please contact the Temple Office for the Zoom link.
