Buddhist Blessing of the Pets

Buddhist Blessing of the Pets

October 20, 2018 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

As a part of their visit to Wake Forest, the Tibetan Buddhist monks of the Gaden Shartse Monastery will host an event especially for our four-legged friends.  Bring your well-behaved pet, or a photo of your pet, for individual blessings by the monks.  Dogs must be on a non-retractable leash.  Other pets must be crated.  This event will be held in the Museum of Anthropology parking lot.  Pets will not be allowed in the Museum, but the MOA is conveniently located close to WFU walking trails, so you can enjoy a walk following your blessing.  There is no charge for this event, but the monks will gratefully accept donations.

This event is held in conjunction with the MOA exhibit Faith: Five World Religions and is sponsored by Silk Roads Winston-Salem.
