Vesak Celebration (Buddha's Birthday) and 10th Anniversary of Blue Cliff Monastery

Join us as we celebrate the Buddha's Continuation Day.

Siddhartha, or Buddha Shakyamuni, was an enlightened being whose teachings have helped millions of people touch the peace, love and understanding inherent in each of us.

In celebration and remembrance of the Buddha, we will practice mindfulness together as a sangha, or community, seeing that the Buddha is still very much alive, here and now. 

On this day of mindfulness, let us celebrate together the life of one of the greatest beings on Earth. Those wishing to stay at the monastery over the weekend are welcome to register for a Personal Retreat during this time to enjoy a joyful, mindful weekend.
