Sacramento 2011 Vesak – Buddha Day

Here is something that might be fun to attend nearby:

Vesak is celebrated in Buddhist countries and communities around the world to honor the birthday and teachings of the historical Buddha. While local celebrations have been held before, this year’s “Sacramento Buddha Day Event” brings together many Buddhist communities and meditation organizations to celebrate the 2600th anniversary of the Buddha’s life. The festivities offer a chance for Buddhist and non-Buddhist meditation practitioners to interact and learn, and for the general community to experience Asian culture and Buddhist teachings.
