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.
