WE’RE BRINGING THE TEMPLE TO YOU!

Wesak is the most important day of the year for Buddhists everywhere. Traditionally, it’s celebrated by going to the temple or monastery to make offerings, to receive blessings from monks, and to collect merits with virtuous deeds like bathing the Buddha and taking the Eight Precepts.

Why is Wesak so significant? Because this day commemorates the three most momentous events in the life of Buddha Shakyamuni – the birth of Prince Siddhartha Gautama, his Enlightenment in becoming Buddha Shakyamuni and the occasion of his parinirvana. It’s so sacred that the merits from any virtuous deed performed on this day are multiplied 100,000 times.

Unfortunately, it’s likely that most of us will not be able to celebrate this year’s Wesak in the usual way as the COVID-19 pandemic has affected our lives tremendously. Buddhists believe that such widespread obstacles are the result of collective negative karma. Luckily for us, Buddha also taught methods to purify negative karma and accumulate merits to improve our individual and collective situations. And one way for us to generate huge merits is through virtuous actions of body, speech and mind performed on auspicious days like Wesak, when merits gained are multiplied 100,000 times.

And so, because we all need merits, and since no one can come to the temple for Wesak, we’re bringing the temple to you!

Tune in on FB Live for an online-only #StayHome Wesak Celebration, live-streamed to you from Kechara Forest Retreat. Take the Eight Precepts, chant along during the Special Wesak Lama Chopa puja, listen to our Wesak Day Dharma talk, and let us bathe the Buddha and make light & incense offerings on your behalf. You can also request our resident pastors to pray for you and your loved ones. In other words, let us help you collect merits from the safety and comfort of your home.
