"Vesak Day
Celebrating the Buddha's birth, awakening, and parinirvana
Sunday, May 19, 2019

On Vesak Day, we celebrate the Buddha's birth, awakening, and parinirvana, and we rejoice in our own potential to become fully awakened too.


We not only remember the kindness of our root teacher, Shakyamuni Buddha, we also honor all the teachers who have brought the Dharma to our hearts and minds.


All merit accumulated on this special day is multiplied 100 million times.


Suggested Vesak Day Practices

Take the 8 Mahayana Precepts.
Read or recite and reflect on Buddhist sutras, like the Heart Sutra or the Sutra of the Three Heaps (35 Buddhas).
Watch Ven. Chodron's beautiful telling of the Buddha's life story and how it relates to your own life.
Watch Ven. Chodron's teaching from Buddhism: One Teacher, Many Traditions, on how the Buddha's life is explained in Pali and Sanskrit traditions.
Make special offerings to the Three Jewels on your altar and do the extensive offering practice.

Watch Ven. Chodron's inspiring Vesak Day talk encouraging us to recall and realize our human potential.
Make special offerings to your teachers, Dharma center, or monasteries."
