Coronation Celebrations with Fusion Lunch Dansala
May 6 @ 10:30 am - 3:00 pm
We are delighted to have this wonderful opportunity to celebrate Coronation of King Charles III together as a united, inclusive community in Milton Keynes. We have already been in touch with leaders of different ethnic/religious community groups in Milton Keynes and have invited them to participate in this event along with members of their community (numbers limited). In addition, we have also invited 20-30 elderly citizens of Milton Keynes to attend, particularly those living by themselves. The live broadcast of the coronation event will be shown on a large indoor screen, from 10.30 am until approximately 2.00pm.
This event takes place during the Vesak season, which marks the birth, enlightenment and parinibbana of the Buddha and therefore is a significant auspicious occasion for Buddhists. Reflecting the traditional practice of generosity during this period by offering food to the wider community, refreshments will be available throughout the session. A special Fusion lunch combining dishes from a variety of cultures and nationalities together with a more traditional menu will also be available for all to enjoy.
The event will end with a special Buddhist Chanting Ceremony to bless our King and the Queen, wishing them both good health, peace and happiness and a glorious and productive reign.
