Flower Sacrifice Ceremony
Sunday October 31st: From 2 pm to 3 pm
On October 31st, the Japanese Garden invites everyone to experience our Flower Sacrifice Ceremony. Anyone can offer a flower. You can bring your own. That one flower is today a symbol of our gratitude and respect. With softness she is entrusted back to the earth. It shows us the cycle of life, the cycle of our life. After the ceremony, the flowers are offered outside the Shinto Shrine.
Silence and respect for nature: they remain the most important symbols of the Japanese Garden. We therefore like to end the season in that atmosphere. The ceremony is in collaboration with Yo E An, an organization that studies and practices Shingon Buddhism, one of the major currents of Japanese Buddhism.
