Parinirvana Day

Parinirvana Day

Sunday 28 February 10am – 3:30pm

This is an important date in the Buddhist calendar and the first of the five main festival days we celebrate. 

The death of the Buddha's body signifies the end of his cycle of death and rebirth and the Buddha entering into Parinirvana or the 'final Nirvana'. There will be an exploration of the Maha-Parinirvana Sutta which details the days leading up to the Buddha's death. 

This festival day also provides the opportunity to remember anyone who may have died in the past year, there will be time for this during the puja (Buddhist ritual) at the end of the day. 

This day is suitable for anyone who is familiar with the meditation practices we teach.
