About the Event

More Mesa hike & Boon Khoa Pradupdin ceremony at ABMT (8:30 am to 1 pm)

We will take a casual, flat walk along the trails of More Mesa, sit for about 15 minutes of meditation, then return to the temple in time for the ceremony. Park at ABMT.

Boon Khoa Pradupdin is a traditional Thai/Lao ceremony designed to encourage us to reflect on loved ones who have passed away and to do good things in their honor. The ceremony starts at 10:00 am and ends at the conclusion of lunch. Lunch will be provided by the Thai and Lao communities.

Folks are welcome to come for just the ceremony, or join us for the hike too.

*If you plan to join us for the hike, please arrive early since we plan to depart ABMT promptly at 8:30 am.


There are no fees to participate in any of these events. Heartfelt donations for the temple and/or our co-hosts and friends at Purnamaya would be gratefully accepted.

*****Parking at ABMT*****

Parking along Orchid Drive Extension (the short street that Cal-Orchid is on) is permissible. Please do not park along Orchid Drive (the main street through the neighborhood) itself, as you may be subject to tow.
