Vesak 2013

Vesak, obviously in Asia, is one of the big celebrations in our monasteries. When we celebrate Vesak, we think of the Buddha and the three events in his life–his birth, enlightenment, and parinibbana (death).  As Ajahn Sumedho teaches, everyone’s going to experience birth and death.  The purpose of human life is to realize that in between bit–enlightenment.
