In 1993, the Buddhist journal Tricycle initiated a celebration of Buddhism in New York's Central Park, called Change Your Mind Day. Over 40 cities now participate.
Held out of doors as in the time of the Buddha, the name captures the Buddhist thought that suffering begins in the mind, and if we can change it, we can lead happier lives.
During this day teachers from various traditions in Buddhism will give talks and instruction. CYM Day is designed to introduce meditation practices in a friendly, public setting, free of charge. People who are curious, new to Buddhism, or life-long practitioners are invited to relax and enjoy the event. It is a wonderful opportunity to meet Buddhists from the diverse communities in the area.
Many area Buddhist groups will have informational tables. The event will begin and end with the ringing of a bell 108 times.
We thank several individual chefs, and these restaurants for donating food: Thai Lily
