Happy Vesak Day 22 May 05

Vesak Day is a highly important occasion in the Buddhist calendar, Vesak Day commemorates Lord Buddha's entry into Nirvana after attaining spiritual enlightenment.

This special day commemorates Lord Buddha’s birth, enlightenment and parinirvana, as these three occasions fall on the full moon of the same lunar month. Besides being a festival for rejoicing and making offerings to the Triple Gems, it is also an occasion for reflecting on personal spiritual development.

Though I am no buddhist,Ii find thatBuddhistss teaching promotes peace, understanding andenlightenmentt. And that's good!
