We have the following major events took place in May and early June.
On the Sunday of May 21st, we had the Vesak Celebration (Celebration of Buddha birthday) in Lotus Pond Temple. We all had a chance to bathe the baby Buddha to commemorate his teaching passed down 2000 years ago and to cultivate the Buddha nature within ourselves. Thay Phap Kham also delivered an insightful dharma talk, reminding us of our aspirations of becoming Buddha-to-be.
