Today is the day we celebrate Lord Buddha’s birth, enlightenment and parinibbana. This holiday is often accompanied by plenty of temple visits and merit making. (Temple hopping?) You’ll find me over at Dharma Vijaya this evening and Metta Forest Monastery tomorrow. Great events and lots of great food!
If you happen to live in the LA metro area, mark your calendars for the Southern California University Buddhist Association’s annual Vesak festival on May 23!
This event will also be a great opportunity to get autographed copies of books by Don Farber, which I hear will be sold there!
