#DOMORE ALL DAY IN THE FOREST

Celebrated by Buddhists everywhere, Wesak Day commemorates the three most significant events in the life of Buddha Shakyamuni – the birth of Prince Siddhartha Gautama, his Enlightenment in becoming Buddha Shakyamuni and the occasion of his parinirvana.

Of all the days in the year, the holiest for Buddhists is Wesak. It is so sacred that the merits from any virtuous deed performed on this day are multiplied 100,000 times.

This Wesak on May 19th, join us for a full day of virtuous deeds and meritorious activities at Kechara Forest Retreat from 8 am to 10 pm.Featuring crowd favourites like bathing the Buddha, pastor blessings and special Wesak prayers, this all-day event culminates in a candlelight procession around Kechara Forest Retreat’s Holy Walk.
