On 8 August 2021, the Rose Ceremony was organized at Plum Village in France. The tradition of wearing roses to remember the kindness and love of our parents started in Plum Village during the Summer Retreat in 1983. You can learn more about it and the meaning of this tradition by reading an interview with our teacher – the Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh given in the year 2008.

This year, the ceremony was also live-streamed online with thousands of people joining us on Zoom and Youtube. Let’s enjoy some photos.
