Festival of Wesak

Wesak occurs on the full moon of Taurus. The easiest way to know when the Wesak full moon occurs is that it is the first full moon following Easter Sunday and can occur in the month of April or May.

The legend of Wesak speaks of a sacred ceremony held in a valley in the Himalayas in which the Buddha, the Christ and Enlightened beings at the heart of all Faiths deliver a special blessing to the world.

This year the Wesak full moon occurs on Wednesday, April 29th, 5:58 pm
