The community of monk/nuns of Blue Cliff invited practitioners from around the region to a Special Day of Mindfulness on AUGUST 15th 2010 (Sunday) in Blue Cliff Monastery. This DOM was hosted by the monastics of Deer Park and Blue Cliff. During lunch, the monastics participated in an alms round, begging for food as lay practitioners offered cooked food into their bowl. The lay practitioner also followed behind the monastics serving the food provided on the serving tables. Everyone walked mindfully in two lines men & women then eating together in the big Meditation Hall. According to the monastics It happened like that every day during the Buddha's time.
