A group of Buddhist nuns will open Cork’s new Marina Market with a candlelit chanting ceremony
It’s a blessing of abundance.
With all systems go for the Marina Sunday Market this weekend, the event will have an extra good luck charm for the first day of the new venture, thanks to a group of Buddhist nuns.
The nuns, who are from Cork’s Hanmi Esoteric School, will conduct a ‘Bring Forth the Light’ ceremony at the launch of Cork’s newest market on Sunday, September 20th, a practice which they hope will “raise the vibration of the space and bring good luck to all involved”.
A traditional Temple Altar dedicated to Lord Jambhala, known as the Buddhist patron of wealth and abundance has been installed in the market space.
The deity is associated with material and spiritual wealth, protection from life’s difficulties as well as the granting of financial stability – something we could probably all do with if a heavenly advocator is offering.
Visitors to the market, located in the old Ford factory premises on the Centre Park Road, will be invited to light candles and make wishes as the monks chant from 12.30pm.
You can also participate via this Zoom link using the password 2020.
