Event description

Description

Vesak (or Wesak) is also known as “Buddha Day” because it is the most sacred annual event in the Buddhist calendar, for it is a celebration of the birth, Enlightenment and passing away of the Buddha. Join in the millions of people around the world who celebrate Vesak throughout the month of May.

Metta Centre will be hosting a Vesak Celebration on the 28 May, to commemorate our teacher, the Buddha’s birth, Enlightenment, and passing away. There are many ways to offer our gratitude and respect to the Buddha: flowers, incense, chants, and prostrations. Metta Centre’s annual Silent Vesak Celebration honours the Buddha with our silent practice. You may choose to practice in your own way in accordance with the Buddha’s teachings, or you may wish to use one of the exercises provided to participants for your practice at our Vesak Celebration.
