NC Buddhist Vihara

Vesak Ceremony - 2018

 

Dear Devotees and Friends,

Vesak is a Buddhist festival that is celebrated in the month of May to commemorate Buddha’s Birthday, Enlightenment and Passing away. This year the Vesak ceremony will be held on Sunday, May 27th, at the NC Buddhist Vihara. The program will begin at 7.00AM and end at 10:00pm.

We cordially invite you, your family members, friends and well-wishers to join us for these events of the Vesak celebration. There will be many events of Dana, Seela and Bhavana for all of you to participate in many ways and to accumulate merits.

Please encourage your children to observe the Eight Precepts and take part in the children’s Vesak day activities. If you have questions/comments, you may reach the temple at 919-827-4389 or 336-250-140 7 (cell number).

Your participation, donations, and help are much appreciate.
