Dharma Authentication Day & Dharma Name Conferment Ceremony

Join us for a special Dharma Authentication & Dharma Name Conferment Ceremony at the Won Buddhist Temple of Philadelphia.

Lunch & Refreshments will be served after the service.

Looking back to August 21st 1919, the utmost sincerity of the nine
disciples, who were unconcerned about life or death, produced the miracle
of the seal of blood from bare fingers. Founding Master Sotaesan remarked,
"Your minds have already moved the divine spirits of heaven and earth and
the proceedings of the hidden authorities have rendered a verdict.... Exert
yourselves only on your practice and your work with an unattached, single
 by conferring on them dharma names and honorific dharma titles.
