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.
