ANNOUNCEMENT
BUDDHA’S BIRTHDAY – VESAK 2017


Namo Sakya Muni Buddha
Dear Buddhist followers,
Buddha’s Birthday is a day that Buddha manifests in this world. It is also a day the world joyfully greets the appearance of the Awakened One. Not only do humans welcome the manifestation of Buddha, the heaven worlds scatter flowers on the loving Spiritual Father of All Beings. The event of being born Siddhartha Prince and later becoming Sakya Muni Buddha is praised by the world in happy and joyful spirits. Sakya Buddha is the one who opens new ways to see life, new paths to practice and new life styles to live harmoniously with others, which are the teachings of Middle Paths and Non-Self.


In order to celebrate and offer our gifts on this special day, Đông Hưng Temple creates a bathing baby Buddha’s altar and hosts the bathing event from 10:30 AM to 3:00PM on Sunday May 7, 2017 (April 12 lunar calendar) at the temple ground. (Please see the detail agenda).
On behalf of Đông Hưng Temple, we invite all of you and your family members to join us at the Buddha’s Birthday event. We extend our gratitude to you and all others. May you always experience peace and happiness!
May all of us be companions of all Buddhas and Bodhisattvas!


Sincerely yours,


Đông Hưng Temple
