    Ring in 2018 with the “Bell of the Last Night,” a cultural, spiritual Buddhist observance called Joya-E. Everyone who attends will participate in the ringing of the “calling bell” 108 times during the service, which symbolically rings out the 108 delusions of woman and man and rings in our aspiration to overcome ignorance, greed and anger in the coming year. It’s a way to reflect on the events of 2017 and “move away from our selfish and ego-centered ways.” There will be a 40-minute service.
