Parinirvana Day: the death of the Buddha (in Triratna, the 12th of February)
Buddha Day (Wesak festival) on the 14th July: the celebration of the Buddha’s Enlightenment Wesak is the festival marking Siddhartha Gotama’s Enlightenment thus becoming the Buddha. Buddha means awake. We will be looking at what it means to be ‘awake’, what the Buddha woke up to and what that means for us now. There will be children’s activities for the first hour and then meditation and ritual/mantras in the context of a puja. The festival is open to all although the meditation won’t be led.
Dharma Day: the celebration of the Buddha’s teaching (the full moon of July)
Sangha Day: the celebration of spiritual community (the full moon of November)
All are welcome, we operate on donation basis, the festivals run from 4 – 6pm.
