Event description

Description

Join Peace Point Meditation for an event at DIMC in Azusa, California.

Visakha Puja (Vesak) Day is the most important holiday in Buddhism. It is the day that Buddhists of all traditions assemble to commemorate the life of the historic Buddha. This is because Visakha day marks the anniversary of three major events in the Buddha’s life. Visakha Day is the day of the Buddha’s birth, enlightenment, and passing into Nibbana, all of which occurred on the full moon day of the sixth lunar month.

Come meditate and participate in our candle lighting ceremony in celebration of Visakha day.
