Buddha’s Birthday Celebration

Sunday 11am, May/03/2020
Online Service via GoToMeeting

As we observe Buddha’s Birthday in this time of pandemic, let us make this celebration to deepen our understanding of the Buddha’s life and his teachings.


It will be celebrated in the traditional Mahayana Buddhist way with a lotus lantern. Lotus is a symbol of enlightenment for Buddhists. Though the lotus lives in muddy water, its beauty is not tainted by the mud. Similarly though we live in Samsara (the cycle of birth, life, death and rebirth), we too should strive not to be tainted by its influence. The lotus lanterns are made to symbolize the light of wisdom which shines to illuminate the Buddha Nature that is within all of us.
