Parinirvana Day festival: Led by Saranasiri

Parinirvana Day festival: February 16th  10am-1pm

Today we celebrate the Buddha’s passing.

What happens on parinirvana day?

It celebrates the day when the Buddha is said to have achieved Parinirvana, or complete Nirvana, upon the death of his physical body. Passages from the Nirvana Sutra describing the Buddha’s last days of life are often read on Parinirvana Day.

We will start the day at 10pm with mediation and Saranasiri will lead the day with a talk.

Itinerary for the day

Meditation:

Talk:      “The Buddha’s Parinivana – His last journey”

Puja:      Names of recently deceased may be placed on the shrine.

Lunch:  We end the festival with a shared Vegan lunch (please bring something to share!)

I hope to see all.
