Today is the New-moon day of the holy Vesakhā Month. On these Uposatha (observance) days, the laity devote themselves to a day of restraint, meditation and cultivation of mindfulness. Some may observe the Eight Precepts and listen to or read Dhamma teachings attentively.
In just two weeks time, Buddhists in Malaysia will celebrate the most important day in the Buddhist calendar – the Vesakhā Full-moon ‘Buddha Day’. We invite you to join us at Nalanda for the ‘Buddha Day’ Observance which starts on 3 May to 7 May. For the list of programmes, please visit www.wesak.org.my
