Bodhinyanarama Buddhist Monastery
From Voices 26 May 2014
It’s Veask at the Bodhinyanarama Buddhist Monastery in Stokes Valley, Wellington. This is the big one! It’s Buddha's birthday, Buddha's enlightenment and Buddha's final passing. A day to honour a great being and a day of celebrating his life and legacy. Precepts, rice pindapat (alms offerings), sharing of merit, sharing of marvellous meals, Dhamma talk, blessings ... and a visiting VIP Monk from the UK!
Surrounded by 51 hectares of beautiful bush, Lynda joins families and devotees for the celebration at the monastery to learn more.
