Work as Practice I – Prepare for July 4th Parade
July 1, 2015

On 7/1 afternoon, students from 6-week Monastic Life Retreat are preparing for the July 4th parade. Since the 2015 Special Olympics World Summer Games will open on 25 July in Los Angeles, California, the temple chooses its LA2015 logo as the parade theme this year. The volunteer firstly makes the sign out of wood. Then, all the students are responsible to paint the colors according to the logo. Despite only few have art skills and the rest have never done any painting before, a colorful Special Olympics logo sign is finally completed with the collaborative efforts from everyone!! This shows one of the core teachings from Fo Guang Shan Monastic order, “None of us is as good as All of us”!!
