A retired business owner, my passions are cooking, photography and eating. I use all three of these when I write for recipeyum.com.au which is on HubGarden
FREE vegetarian carnival for all
Vegetarian meals can be very tasty and there is a huge range that you can make nowadays and plenty of recipes that you can find online or in magazines. One of my favourites is pasta with different sauces and I find them very versatile as there are so many sauces you can actually make to go with any type of pasta.
The Vegetarian Carnival will be on in commemoration of Guan Yin Bodhisattva's Enlightenment Day. Come and join in the fun and enjoy the tasty vegetarian food.
To commemorate Guan Yin Bodhisattva's Enlightenment Day, the Australian Chinese Buddhist Association, Melbourne Branch will hold a large-scale vegetarian event at the Preston Town Hall on Sunday 21st July 2019 from 11.00 am to 2.30 pm. The event honours the spirit of compassion for Guan Yin Bodhisattva and invites the wider community to come together to share a variety of delicious vegetarian food with the whole community.
On the day, there will be some very interesting talks on how eating vegetarian food brings you blessings. You will be able to hear and see a performance presented by the youth acting group from the association. All the guests will be provided with FREE vegetarian meals. There will also be some FREE Buddhist books and Guan Yin amulets to take home.
There will be volunteers at the event and they will be answering any questions that you may have. Everyone is welcome to attend this FREE event no matter what suburb they live in and no matter what your beliefs are!
Why not try it and especially if you do not cook vegetarian yourself - you will see how good vegetarian food can taste!
Vegetarian food, as mentioned, is a great idea to try if you do not cook it yourself and if you already are a vegetarian, you might even get more ideas from this event! Make sure you keep the date free as it is a FREE event.
The Australian Chinese Buddhist Society provides a venue for worshipping and studying the Buddhist faith. They also provide a place for celebrating cultural activities.
They offer help to members to honour their family members who have already passed and help in community projects as well as donating to worthy causes.
They have a once a week worship in Guanyin Hall, as well as this once a year regular vegetarian carnival. They also run a Dharma talk by Master Lu and a Chinese New Year and mid-autumn festival. These are in aid of the activities of the temple to promote Buddhism.
