Happy Vesak

This 26th of May is the full moon which marks the triply auspicious date of the Birth, the Awakening and the passing into Parinibbāna of the Bhagavan Buddha.

This day is also called Buddha Jayanti or Buddha Purnima.

May all blessings be with you on this very special day.

Here are the first words he declared upon his awakening, as dawn was breaking:
