Buddha Day is the most significant festival of the Buddhist year, marking the anniversary of the Buddha's Enlightenment. On the 9th May Kusalasara and Sanghajit will lead a full day celebration of this event of universal significance.
During the week building up to the festival they will also be exploring related themes in a special series of morning meditations from Monday to Saturday.
Also, the LBC's President, Subhuti, will be joining us to mark the occasion and he'll be giving a few talks over the course of the week, drawing on different aspects of the Buddha's vision.
