Buddha Day Festival - a day to celebrate the Buddhas Enlightenment May 18th 2019

"The Tathagata knowing that the Devaputras were uncertain rose into the sky to the height of 7 tala trees and uttered these joyous words. The Chain is Broken, the emotions stilled, the stream of impurities is dry and runs no more. Since the chain is destroyed suffering is ended. It was then that the Devaputras covered the Tathagata with heavenly flowers." (Lalitavistara Sutra)
