“If there is one most beautiful day in the world, it is the World Honored One's birth; If there is ever one happiest time in our lives, it is the day we kneel at His feet. Indeed, this is a very important festival of the Buddha's children, not only in Vietnam but all over the world.

Before the ceremony, Junior Thich Tam Bien, the monks of Hoang Phap Pagoda had a session to share the Meaning of Buddha's Birthday. Bodhisattva descended to earth, bringing the light of compassion and wisdom to this world; He walked on seven golden lotuses:

"Seven golden lotuses raise His jewel heels

Three thousand worlds welcome the Tathagata"

The seven golden lotuses are a great message about the Buddha's process of achieving Supreme Enlightenment. We have also been, are and will be walking in the footsteps that He walked. That image appears everywhere, evoking in each Buddhism follower a confidence in self-enlightenment. Let's try our best to practice and apply the Buddha's teachings every day to gradually build a peaceful, happy life and achieve deliverance.

At exactly 9:30 am, the ceremony was held in honor of the Venerable Sangha.

Attending the ritual was the presence of Mr. Thich Minh Loc, Head of Buddhist Sangha of Bu Dop District, the Venerable Monks of Bu Dop District, monks and Buddhists of Hoang Phap Pagoda, and Buddhists everywhere.

After declaring the reason, introducing the program and participants, on behalf of the Organizers, Junior Thich Tam Duyet announced to read the Opening Address.

To commemorate the great merit of the World Honored One, the whole audience turned to the statue of the birth, celebrated the birthday rite and the traditional Buddha bathing ceremony. This ritual helps to eliminate defilements, towards the purity of three karmas.

After that, the Venerable Monks released doves, prayed for world peace, prosperous country, happy families, sentient beings imbued with the rain of Dharma, everyone would be blessed.

At the end of the ceremony, Junior Thich Tam Duyet sent his gratitude to all the Sangha and Buddhists who returned to attend the ceremony, joining hands to complete the ceremony successfully. And, the monks gave gifts of Dharma to Buddhists and took souvenir photos.

The warm party is the closing image of the Buddha's birthday celebration in the joy of the mass.
