Wesak Program of Georgia Buddhist Vihara, Inc

Our annual Wesak program celebrates three events of the utmost significance in the life of Prince Siddhartha who became a Buddha – His Birth, his attainment of Enlightenment, and his passing away. 

Georgia Buddhist Vihara warmly invites you to be a part of the triple commemoration. Wesak full moon day has been for centuries regarded as the Buddha Day. For it was on a Wesak full moon day, that the Sakyan prince Siddhartha Gautama was born, in Lumbini Park, on the frontier of Nepal, attained Enlightenment, under the Bodhi tree in Gaya, and passed away in Kusinara. The Buddhists all over the world celebrate with devotion the Triple Anniversary of Wesak. To a true follower of the Buddha, there is no greater day than Wesak Poya which also symbolizes peace, love, compassion, and piety.

  1. Dear Friends and Devotees,
    I personally would like to encourage all; the community members to take part in our Dhamma School Event from 4:00pm to 6:00pm to uplift spirit and admire our future generation, whom we look forward to pass the torch of our Sri Lankan culture, hospitality and the words wisdom.
    This would also be a great opportunity to see how lucky we all are to have a buddhist temple of our own in this city we live in, to develop our morality and wisdom.
    Looking forward to seeing you all on May 5th, 2018 at Georgia Buddhist Vihara.
