Vesak Full Moon Poya Day 2012

Georgia Buddhist Vihara wishes you a happy and a peaceful Vesak!

Our annual Vesak program celebrates three events of the utmost significance in the life of prince Siddhartha who became the 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. Vesak full moon day has been for centuries regarded as the Buddha Day. For it was on a Vesak full moon day, that the Shakyan prince Siddhartha Gautama was born, in Lumbini Park, on the frontier of Napal, attained Enlightenment, under the Bodhi tree in Gaya, and finally passed away. Buddhists all over the world celebrate with devotion the Triple Anniversary of Vesak. To a true follower of the Buddha, there is no greater day than Vesak Poya day which also symbolizes peace, love, compassion and piety.
With this in view the Vihara has organized various activities to celebrate this occasion focusing on Dana, Seela and Bhavana (Generosity, Morality, and Meditation).
