Invitation Letter of Attending the 2568th Vesak Day Celebration and Ceremony for a Westerner to be ordained as a Novice Monk
 Sunday, June 9, 2024
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 illuminate both gods and human beings.
Now the Four Assemblies in the presence 
Jointly study and practice the Dharma, all regions get peaceful and happy.
As we know every year when the great Vesak festival returns to different places around the world, whether we are Buddhists or non-Buddhists, whether we are workers, officials, or teachers, etc. …, whether at the Temple, at the Monastery, or even in an 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 here in the present life.
In order for this year’s Vesak Day to increase more solemn parts, we would like to wholeheartedly invite the Venerable Monastic and lay Buddhist devotees to spend your precious time coming to Pháp Nhãn Temple to attend this great event. Your presence and witnesses are a great blessing to our Temple. We are deeply grateful to you for your presence.
