Dear Members and Devotees                                                                    

 VESAK DAY, a full moon day, is the most important annual event for the Buddhist community.  It commemorates the Birth, the Enlightenment and Maha Parinibbana (final passing away) of the 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 Wednesday, 10th May 2017.   There will  be  Dhamma talks and  slide shows of the Buddhist places of pilgrimage.  The programme for the day is printed on the next page for your information.
