Mountain Spring Monastery, 2657 Bells Line of Rd, Bilpin NSW 2758, Australia

About the event

At this time Mountain Spring Monastery is celebrating “Tet’’ (known as Lunar New Year) as one of our traditional annual festivals. As the root of Plum Village’s practices originates from Vietnamese Buddism, celebrating Tet in Plum Village is an opportunity to return to our genetic and spiritual ancestors, to see that these two roots inter-are. When we have realized our roots, our life is no longer in confusion and fear, we are well-protected by our genetic and spiritual ancestors.

“Earth cake” is a traditional Vietnamese rice cake especially made during Tet. The main ingredient is sticky rice, and the filling is made of mung beans, and it is wrapped in banana leaves. In Plum Village, the gathering for wrapping the earth cake can be very joyful and fun.  Please join us, no previous experience needed.
