The Great Birth Sermon:  Sunday, September 1

There will be the telling of the story, comprising 13 chapters of a Jataka, about one of the lives of the Buddha.  In this story, a prince gives away everything he owns, including his children, thus displaying the virtue of perfect charity.  This is an important part of the traditional folklore in Thailand, and it is a popular celebration there.
