Vesak Day is a special day for Buddhists. It is a joyous occasion when we strengthen our faith in the Triple Gem, and renew our commitment to walk the Path that will lead us to the ultimate bliss as shown by the Buddha.

Let us commemorate this significant day together in a spiritually meaningful way, and we warmly invite you to join us on Vesak Day.
