A Happy and Peaceful Wesak to Everyone

Today is the first full moon of May, the United Nations Day of Vesak Celebration.

There has been a conference, co-hosted by Thailand and Japan to commemorate Vesak and to discuss "Global recovery through engaged Buddhism" running from the 23rd to the 25th.

In Glasgow several Buddhist groups have got together for a major event in the "Hidden Gardens" with this year's theme being; "Bodhi, a Celebration of Enlightenment".

And talking of Scots celebrating Vesak, Gordon Ramsay will be in Kuala Lumpur on Friday to cook up a special vegetarian dish for Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and thousands of people visiting the Buddhist Maha Vihara in Kuala Lumpur for the Wesak Day celebration.

You can join the West Wight Sangha for our celebrations here in Totland on Sunday the 30th from mid-day to five p.m.
