Festivals are an important aspect of Buddhist tradition. These days are important for members of the Triratna Buddhist Community to gather for collective practice, to express devotion and gratitude for the three jewels (triratna) of Buddhism: the Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha. Events are also held to commemorate the Buddha's final passing away (parinirvana) and to celebrate the great teacher Padmasambhava.

Does the concept of Enlightenment seem a bit difficult to get your head around, nearly impossible to attain, or applicable only for a select few? A panel of senior Order members – Vidhuma, Dayalocana, and Amala – moderated by Akashavanda, will share their understanding of Enlightenment and how they have “made friends” with it in their practice and daily lives.
This evening celebrating the Buddha’s Enlightenment will begin with special shrine room activities and a film clip from the PBS documentary, The Buddha.
