Hello Dear Readers,
April 8th, according to the Solar Calendar, marks the birth of the historical Buddha, known by Buddhists as Shakyamuni Buddha or “the Buddha of the Shakya clan”. For folks who follow Chinese, Korean or Vietnamese Buddhism, the Buddha’s birthday falls on different dates according to the lunar calendar.
This video is just a brief overview of the Buddha’s Birthday in the Mahayana tradition and how can appreciate the life of the Buddha.
Enjoy and wishing you warm celebrations!
P.S. More on the baby Buddha as the lone, world-honored one.
