BUDDHA’S BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION

 

The aim of Buddhism is to help people free themselves from suffering. Buddhism started with the Buddha which means 'one who is awake' -- in the sense of having 'woken up to reality.' The Buddha was born as prince Siddhartha Gautama in India around 2,642 years ago. He did not claim to be a god or a prophet. He became an enlightened one who understands life in the deepest way. After enlightenment, he shared his realizations so that others could free themselves from suffering.

On the occasion of the Buddha’s Birthday, we cordially invite you, your family and friends to come to Phap Nguyen Temple to celebrate with us.
