Announcement: Vesak Day @ UCR

Monday, May 9th, 2011

Brought to you by our friends from the UC Riverside Buddhist Student Association (BSA), the UCLA University Buddhist Association (UBA), and the Buddhist Association at UC Irvine  – Please join us if you can on Saturday, May 21st, from 10am-2pm at UCR.


“Realize, Reflect, and Flourish:
Enlighten your mind and remember to open your heart.”

Join the Southern California Buddhist Student Association in our annual Vesak Day. “Vesak” is Pali for the celebration of the Buddha’s life; it comprises the Buddha’s birth, enlightenment, and great passing. Come hear from like-minded people and gain insight on how to live a happier life. There will be three speakers covering the topics of “Realize, Reflect, and Flourish”, performances from local organizations, and a panel speaking on their personal experience with Buddhism. This year’s Vesak Day will be a refreshing event, and all are welcome to attend. Lunch will be provided ☺

Friendship and communication are essential parts of our lives, yet it can be challenging for many of us to build and maintain good friendships and communicate effectively with the people in our lives. The Young Wisdom Project (YWP) invites you to spend a fun day learning about friendship and communication from the perspective of the Buddhist teachings! All are welcome, especially young people ages 15-30. Food and drinks will be provided. Hope to see you there!
