Sunday, May 14, 2023
Dear Venerable Monastic and Lay Buddhist Devotees,
We respectfully listen to the Buddha’s Birthday poem:
The Buddha having been present in life
Propagates the right Dharma to brighten in the human and heavenly realms.
Now the Four Assemblies in the presence
Jointly study and practice the Dharma, all regions become peaceful and happy.
We all know every year when the great Vesak festival returns to different parts of the world, whether we are Buddhists or non-Buddhists, whether we are workers, officials, or teachers, etc. …, whether at the Temple or in the office, all of us share the same good thoughts and organize together to practice and study the Buddha Dharma, and review the life of Shakyamuni Buddha to help us live a life of peace, joy, and happiness for the many right in the present life.
