You are invited to Blooming Lotus: KCC’s First Annual Vajriety Show

Dear KCCers, wherever you are, 
Whether here in Portland or in Zanzibar,
It’s time to honor our Resident Lama
For his twenty-five years of teaching the Dharma
With a night of hilarity, song and food
Of truly unparalleled magnitude.
So mark on your calendars 10/27
For as close as a Buddhist can get to heaven.
Put on your fancy clothes and do up your hair,
Get ready for an evening beyond compare.
We’ve all worked hard through all kinds of weather,
And now it’s time to play together.

Whether or not you’re in the show,
Here are some things you need to know:
There’s another way to participate—
Be the boisterous crowd that we captivate!
Eat dinner at home, but save lots of room
For awesome desserts that will make you swoon.
And though the evening is mostly funny,
We won’t be shy about asking for money.
Gotta cover salaries, pay for the heat,
Take care of the place we do retreat.
We’ve built this home and we love it so
Now we gotta raise our annual dough.

At “Blooming Lotus: Vajriety,"
We'll celebrate the blessings of KCC,
And shower Lama Michael with gratitude
For his Bodhisattva attitude, 
With songs and pies and levity
And Buddhist generosity.
