This week marks the Triratna Community’s celebration of the Buddhist festival of Wesak, or Buddha Day, and The Buddhist Centre Online is the perfect place to celebrate together - to see the smiling faces of our brothers and sisters from all over the world reflecting on the Buddha’s Enlightenment.

Some centres have already held their events, and some are still upcoming, so stay tuned and +follow the Community Highlights space as we collect together any postings from around the globe. Our hope is to have a rich collection of photos, videos, audio talks and more!

Here are posts for some of the celebrations that have already taken place:

I don’t see why not. By the way I forgot to mention that there were 5 mitras ceremonies on that day.

We had our first Buddha day celebration with families, kids and friends at the Oslo Buddhist Centre, Norway. Wonderful! So engaging that we forgot to take photos.
