Saturday morning, 7:30am the monks from the Monestary begin a Chinese Tradition called the "Eye Dotting Ceremony" on Dragon Boats at the 2010 Calgary Dragon Boat Regetta. The ceremony's purpose is to ward off evil spirits and prepare the boats for safety and good luck for the paddlers racing in the regatta.
