Parinirvana Day

Sun 11 Feb 10am - 4pm

A day when we celebrate the Buddha’s final passing into Nirvana. Death is the greatest teaching on impermanence but is hard to embrace with equanimity. With the help of reflective exercises, we’ll shine a light on the reality of our own impermanence. The day will include meditation, puja, readings and practical exercises. Led by Vajragupta
