VISAKHA DAY 2018
"CANDLE LIGHTING FOR WORLD PEACE"
MAY 29, 2018
Visakha Day is a day where Buddhists of all traditions assemble to commemorate the life of the Buddha. The day marks the anniversary of the Buddha's birth, enlightenment, and passing into Nibbana.
On May 29, 2018, over 500 monks and guests from various traditions and backgrounds joined together at DIMC Azusa with the common goal of bringing world peace through inner peace on Visakha Day 2018. The event included the offering of necessities to the Sangha to practice generosity, a guided meditation session to spread loving-kindness, and a candle lighting ceremony to signify how the peace in oneself can easily be shared with those around us.
