‘Buddha Day’ Message B.E.2563

Living Compassionately towards Peace and Harmony

The Full-moon day of Vesakhā month on 19 May is known as ‘Buddha Day’, and marks the beginning of Year 2563 of the Buddhist Era.  For Buddhists, ‘Buddha Day’ is not meant to be celebrated with merry-making.  This auspicious day is observed most meaningfully when Buddhists use the occasion to purify our minds, to reflect on the meaning and purpose of life, and to find out how we can achieve true happiness in our daily lives with the practice of Dhamma.

Sutta Study on Buddha Day

The Buddha’s teaching was passed down in the form of discourses and sermons (Sutta).  Before passing away, the Buddha reminded His disciples that, “the Dhamma and Vinaya I have set forth and laid down for you shall be your teacher after I am gone…”  Thus, He enshrined the Dhamma-Vinaya as the guiding principle in one’s conduct and practice towards liberation.
