This full moon - the 10th May - we celebrated Wesak (often called Buddha Day). In this short video, women in Nagpur, India lead a puja before a mitra ceremony held on the occasion. 

(Sound is slightly quiet at the beginning but gets louder)

Tejadhamma writes…

“We had a three day programme as a celebration with four centres: TBM Mahendranagar North Nagpur, Nagaloka, Mitraloka and Triratna South and West. More than 250 people attended which was very inspiring. I led the mitra ceremony - 11 men and 25 women became mitras - and enjoyed handing over a flower, candle and incense stick to each of them to offer to the shrine.

On the third day we had a cultural evening at Mahendranagar and South and West Triratna Centre which was very exciting and encouraging. There were songs, plays about Kisa Gotami and music - it was wonderful!”
