Chapter 5. The Sixtieth Birthday

Section 3. Management of the Sixtieth Birthday

1. After the ceremony, it is good to offer the guests a simple repast; however, the banquet should not be held more than one time with undue expenses above their means, as it is better to conserve the funds instead and provide for old age.
2. The money conserved from the ceremony can be offered as a donation to the altar Buddha for Buddhist activity or public works as a commemoration of the recipient’s sixtieth birthday.
