A day of celebration, of welcoming in, of waking up.

This is our opportunity to rejoice in the birth of the Enlightened One, the Buddha, and learn from his awakening. And our chance to celebrate each of our very own potential to wake up and make the most of this precious life.

We are delighted that our new president, Subhadassi, will be joining us to take us on a journey to meet the Buddha – and meet ourselves.
