Honoring Elder's day

DDMBASF's Guitar Group was invited to participate in the annual Honoring Elders Day in Gold Mountain Monastery (GMM) on October 25, 2009. GMM is located right in the heart of the San Francisco Chinatown and it's one of the oldest Buddhist Monasteries established by the Master Hsuan Hua in 60s'. When our Shifu, the Ven. Master Sheng Yen came to the U.S. in 70s', he had visited the Ven. Master Hsuan Hua and stayed in GMM for some days.

Meditation with Master Gilbert
