2022 Cultural Moon Festival
The 2022 Moon Festival is being celebrated at the Chung Tian Buddhist Temple over the weekend of the 10th – 11th of September.
On entering through the giant arches just close your eyes for a moment as your mind consumes the serenity and happiness surrounding you. Mindful of each breath, enjoy the glorious fragrances of burning incense while your mind releases all anxiety as you immerse in the delightful melody of chanting echoing in the background. Your eyes slowly waken to this glorious temple stylised on a traditional Chinese palace.
The Cultural Moon Festival is enriched by thousands of years of Asian cultural heritage and is the second most important festival in Asia after the Chinese New Year. It is a reunion time for families, so people celebrate by gathering for dinners, sharing mooncakes with friends and family, and lighting paper lanterns. It is also known by many other names but the most often is referred to as the Mid-Autumn Festival, Harvest Moon Festival, Mooncake Festival, and Lantern Festival.
During the two days of the festival the Chung Tian Temple is holding a wide range of activies aimed at the whole family. This includes: Tea Chan Ceremonies; Dragon Dances; Concert Under the Moon; Market stalls; Baby Blessing Ceremony; Light Offering; Meditation Classes; Tai Chi Casses; Buddhist Talks; Children’s Cooking Class; Children’s face painting; Watre Drop Tea House (also serving coffee and cakes); Children’s storytelling; Calligraphy; Arts and crafts; Vegrun and much more.
Entry to the Chung Tian Temple is free and we look forward to welcoming everyone to join the 2022 Cultural Moon Festival.
