Join Peace Point Meditation for an event at Dhammakaya Int’l Meditation Center in Azusa, California. 

Vesak (Visakha) 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. It marks the anniversary 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 Vesak day.
