Parinirvana Day

Sun 16 Feb 10.30am - 4pm

Die Another Day, Live the Deathless Way

at Viryashalin's, Thornage, near Holt

What The Buddha Attained, We Too Can Attain

The Buddha had to overcome many things before attaining Enlightenment - his was the struggle and determination of an ordinary human being just like us, facing fear and following inspiration. On this festival day, we’ll be celebrating the Buddha’s Enlightenment and rejoicing that it’s possible for us too.

Please consider the environment - arrange to share lifts, or why not cycle there?
