Event description

Description

Bless your baby & toddler, find out what their future might hold


What is Baby Blessing Ceremony?

Every parent has hopes and aspirations that their child grows in good health physically and mentally; that they live a meaningful and fulfilling life; that they develop a kind and loving heart and that they become wise and are blessed with good fortune.

The Venerables of Fo Guang Shan (FGS) Melbourne (International Buddhist College of Victoria Inc) will bless the children so that they may live a happy and fulfilled life under the protection and guidance of the Buddha and Bodhisattvas. It is hoped that the wisdom and compassion of the Buddha and Bodhisattvas will guide the little ones throughout life.


What is "Future within Thy Hands"?

"Future within thy hands” is based on ancient traditional Chinese custom, where children will seek out from an assortment of articles as their item of interest. It is believed that the item(s) grasped can determine the child’s future interests, career path or capabilities.
