Buddha's Birthday Celebration


10 AM – 4 PM | FREE 

Join us for a weekend of spiritual enrichment and relaxation celebrating Buddha's birthday!

Experience the tranquility of Buddha bathing and engage in guided meditation. Explore the teachings of Buddhism through interactive board games and savor moments of serenity with a tea ceremony. Don't miss performances by Buddha’s Light Youth Symphony Orchestra and a special lecture on Sunday entitled 'The Buddha, His teaching & Life.'

Come celebrate the Buddha's birth and bathe the baby Buddha's image which is symbolic of cleansing our own hearts to reveal the greatest potential of our original nature. This event is held in partnership with Hsi Lai Temple in celebration of AAPI Heritage Month.
