Today we celebrate Buddha’s descent from Tushita Heaven where he had spent three months teaching his mother and other gods & goddesses there so that they, too, might be released from the pitiable state of samsara.

This was done to repay the kindness of his mother Mayadevi for all that she had done for him. 4:15am – 4:45am Precepts 9am – 12noon Golden Light Sutra recitation 9am – 3pm Stupa making in the Garden of Enlightenment 5pm – 6:30pm Shakyamuni Buddha Puja Buddha Days are great merit making opportunities.

To help you make merit on Buddha Days we schedule precepts, pujas, sutra recitations, and/or holy-object making.

All activities are freely offered by the centre and if you make holy objects all day Lama Zopa Rinpoche will sponsor lunch. Book for lunch by 10am Join us if you can or do some merit-making activities yourself, like liberating animals that would otherwise be killed. Rinpoche offers lunch to all who work with holy objects throughout the day.
