Tomorrow @ 7pm: Full Moon Lunar Eclipse & Lord Buddha`s Birthday Meditation with Cosmin

From: Cosmin
Sent on: Thursday, May 23, 2013 11:11 AM

Sat Nam!

 

Tomorrow we celebrate “Buddha Purnima” - the most sacred festivals of Buddhists. Buddha Purnima (Buddha Birthday) is celebrated in remembrance of Siddhartha Gautama and it commemorates three important events of Buddha's life: the birth, enlightenment – “Nirvana”, and passing “Parinirvana”.

This is a time for much celebration, and we`ll experience the uplifting and joyous "Smiling Buddha Kriya". Historically, this is an outstanding meditation. The story goes that a Brahman found Siddhartha nearly starved and in an unhappy way, unable to walk after a forty-day fast under the fig tree. He began eating slowly. The great Brahman nursed him back to health, and when Siddhartha finally began to smile again, the Brahman taught him this kriya. Siddhartha went on to become Buddha, who found Enlightenment under the Bodhi tree!

This day is a thrice blessed day, a very auspicious time for meditation & prayer. Celebrate this great day with the community: we`ll meditate, chant, dance, enjoy ancient teachings & fresh fruits!

Immerse yourself in the healing sounds of the LIVE Gong right after the meditation!

Room size can only fit 48, please RSVP now to ensure your spot. RSVP here http://www.meetup.com/GaneshaCenter/events/119403522/
