This year, Vesak Day falls on 17 May Tuesday. Vesak Day commemorates the Birth, Enlightenment and Mahaparinirvana of Lord Shakyamuni Buddha. Our centre has specially organized a series of program on this special day for all Buddhists, starting with 3 Days Mani Recitations from 15 May 2011 Sunday. Together, we dedicate the merits through our sincere recitation of the powerful Avalokiteshvara’s Six Syllables Mantra towards world peace and harmony. It is said that all virtuous actions performed on the auspicious Vesak day will be multiplied many times. So let’s come together to devote ourselves in spiritual practice, observe precepts, be mindful of our body, speech and mind and dedicate the merits for the happiness of all sentient beings. Happy Vesak Day!
