Tzu Chi hosts triple celebration on May 21, public invited

PHILIPSBURG:— The St. Maarten Tzu Chi Foundation will be hosting its annual Triple Celebration of Mother’s Day, Buddha’s Birthday and the Global Tzu Chi’s 51st Anniversary on Sunday, May 21, and it is inviting persons of all faiths to attend this free educational event.

The triple celebration will be held at Tzu Chi Foundation located on the L.B. Scott Road near the Jose Lake Ballpark from 4:00 pm and attendees are asked to wear white, though another attire is also welcomed.

The three-part event will feature the ceremonial washing of the feet of mothers by children. This will be done in an effort to honor mothers and to promote gratitude and respect for the matriarch of families for all that they do.

The Tzu Chi anniversary part of the event will feature the presentation of information about Tzu Chi’s work internationally as well as the work of the local arm in St. Maarten. This year the foundation is celebrating 51 years since its formation by Taiwanese founder Master Cheng Yen.

A traditional ceremony will also be held to mark Buddha’s Birthday.

A presentation will also be made on the practical use of healthy natural enzymes as Tzu Chi’s contribution towards protecting our precious environment.

At the end of the event, attendees will be treated to a delectable vegetarian buffet and fresh juices. The vegetarian buffet is aimed at promoting the diversity of volunteer members in promoting a healthy alternative and to highlight Buddha’s Dharma of non-violence to animals.

The event is open to the general public and people of all faiths are urged to attend.
