Dear Members and Devotees      

VESAK DAY, a full moon day, is the most important annual event for the Buddhist community. It commemorates the Birth, Enlightenment and Maha Parinibbana (final passing away) of Lord Buddha. This thrice sacred day for all Buddhists is observed and celebrated throughout the Buddhist world with great veneration.

This year, Vesak Day falls on Tuesday, 29th May 2018. There will  be Dhamma talks and  slide shows of the Buddhist places of pilgrimage. The programme for the day is provided on the following page for your information.


The Resident Sangha and the Board of Management cordially invite you, your family and friends to join us in celebrating this most sacred Buddhist observance day.


We are also very pleased to inform you that we have already obtained the TOP (Temporary Occupation Permit) for our new Annex Building cum Sima Hall (Ordination Hall). You are cordially invited to preview the Sima Hall prior to the formal consecration ceremony.  The Sima Hall will only be used by the Sangha for carrying out their official monastic duties and ceremonies.


May you be Well and Happy Always!


Yours in the Dhamma


Hon. President

Palelai Buddhist Temple
