Cham Shan Temple.
Hello TorGuqin members and friends;
Our special gathering mentioned last time has been confirmed by the venue! For those who did not receive the last email, my apologies for not having properly delivered to you. Here are the confirmed detailed information:
On Saturday, June 20th, 2009, 2~5PM, TorGuqin will be paying a special trip to Cham Shan Buddhist Temple – A quiet and beautiful house of worship and study with a very strong presence of Chinese architecture. We will be received with a guided tour of the place, followed by the regular procedings of a guqin yaji.
The Temple is located on 7254 Bayview Avenue, Thornhill, 1 block north of Steeles Ave.
It is TTC-accessible (get off at end stop of 11 Bayview Northbound busroute, transferrable from Davisville, Bayview, and Sheppard-Yonge subway stations).
It is common courtesy to the Buddhist establishments to pay homage to the deities once inside (holding incense, prostrate to the figures), and making a donation is highly recommended. Please prepare $2~5 in advance.
It is a rare opportunity for us players to gather in such a culturally-Chinese context in Toronto, so please try to make the time to attend this gathering.
Please send an email if you are attending. Also, please be on time to show respect for the Buddhist master who will be guiding us.
