Beginning Anew Ceremony in English, Vietnamese, at Deer Park Monastery

We are not yet ready for the Beginning Anew Ceremony, please refresh this page 10 minutes before the event starts.

The practice of Beginning Anew dates back to the time of the Buddha. His community of monks and nuns practiced this on the eve of every full moon and new moon.

Everyone wants to experience happiness and harmony in relationships with near and dear ones. As relationships are made up of imperfect human beings, naturally misunderstanding are bound to happen from time to time.

Beginning Anew ceremony is a chance for us to reflect and look inside to see how we have contributed to the tension, misunderstanding or conflict within ourselves and with people around us. As you listen or recite the Beginning Anew text with the sisters of Deer Park Monastery, it can guide you in your process of inner reflection, as well as nourish the good seeds of loving-kindness, forgiveness and healing inside. Please click here or more information on the practice of beginning anew.

You are warmly invited to join the sisters at Deer Park Monastery in their live Beginning Anew ceremony every two weeks at 19:00 PST. Chanting will be in English and in Vietnamese by alternate weeks.

The Fourteen Mindfulness Trainings are a modern distillation of the traditional Bodhisattva precepts of Mahayana Buddhism, and were created by Thich Nhat Hanh in Saigon in 1966.

Monastics and lay friends who have made a vow in a formal ceremony, to receive, study and observe these fourteen trainings are known as “Members of the Order of Interbeing”. The Order of Interbeing (OI), through the Plum Village lineage of Thich Nhat Hanh, belongs to the Linji (Rinzai) tradition of Zen Buddhism. Please note, there is no requirement to be an OI member for you to join this recitation.

The Fourteen Mindfulness Trainings are the very essence of the Order of Interbeing. They are the torch lighting our path, the boat carrying us, the teacher guiding us. They allow us to touch the nature of interbeing in everything that is, and to see that our happiness is not separate from the happiness of others. Interbeing is not a theory; it is a reality that can be directly experienced by each of us at any moment in our daily lives. The Fourteen Mindfulness Trainings help us cultivate concentration and insight which free us from fear and the illusion of a separate self.
