Members of RK Orange County attended the UCI Vesak Celebration Ceremony on May 19th at Student Center at UCI.
Vesak is a holy day observed traditionally by Buddhists sometimes informally called Buddha's Birthday, it actually commemorates the birth, enlightenment, and death of Buddha.
There were panel discussions, dance, bathing the baby Buddha, rituals and Dharma talks.
Many of those who attended were from other Buddhist associations and organizations from Orange County. Members enjoyed the opportunity to celebrate the birthday of Shakyamuni Buddha.
