Baby Blessing Ceremony

We went down to Federation Square on the 18th May 2013 for the Baby Blessing Ceremony as part of Buddha's Day Celebration organised by BLIA (Victoria). Buddha's Day is a yearly event to celebrate Vesak Day (Buddha's birth, enlighenment, life) in Melbourne.

There were alot of babies. The ceremony started off with the Venerables chanting homage then the Heart Sutra. Then everyone lined up to be blessed by the Venerables. There was a souvenir of wrist rosary (child size) and a certificate of participation for the child. Balloons were also given out and pictures taken.
