Celebrate Buddha’s birthday in the most virtuous way

Wesak is the most important day of the year for Buddhists everywhere. Why is it so significant? Because this day commemorates the three most momentous events in the life of Buddha Shakyamuni – the birth of Prince Siddhartha Gautama, his Enlightenment in becoming Buddha Shakyamuni and the occasion of his parinirvana. It’s so sacred that the merits from any virtuous deed performed on this day are multiplied 100,000 times.

So join us on Wesak for a full day of virtuous deeds and make 100,000x merits with the whole family.
