Applications must be received by Saturday, Feb. 11th to ensure enough time to prepare the ofuda for Hoshi Matsuri on Feb. 19th since it’s heartfeltly hand-written
Ofuda (Paper Tablet) / $10 USD
As a part of Hoshi Matsuri, meaning “Enshrining Stars,”, we imbue the spirit of our guiding stars of the year into ofuda, temporary homes of special paper tablets. From ofuda these deities watch over our lives throughout the year. Each ofuda is customized for you; your name is hand-written, and your star and prayer are stamped.
Omamori (Portable Amulet) / $20 USD
This year we will also offer a Monju Bosatsu omamori. Monju Bosatsu is the Guardian Buddha for the Year of Rabbit, who is cutting out our entangled attachments to revive our innate wisdom.
