Happy Buddha Day

Postby Gramma Jackie » Sun Apr 04, 2010 6:50 am

Buddah's birthday is celebrated at various times during the spring in different countries. I used to live in Hawaii and it was celebrated on April 8th, but the temple observance were usually on the Sunday before. So today in Hawaii and some other places, today is Buddah Day.

Also, tonight there will be a special presentation on the life of Buddah narrated by Richard Gere on PBS.

It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.

Thanks for clarifying that day for the PBS special about Buddha, Letha. I misread it.
