“Gautama sat down beneath the Bodhi Tree and did not get up again. The next day, so Buddhists say, a new person sat there – a realised sage who would be known henceforth by his title, Buddha: the Awakened.” (Vishvapani¬†Gautama Buddha: The Life and Teachings of the Awakened One)

Join us at Adelaide Triratna next Tuesday evening in a puja to honour the Awakening of the Buddha traditionally celebrated on the full moon in May. One of the ways Gautama spoke about his experience that night was in terms of a way of seeing the world, that gave him an entirely new perspective on life, not just an exalted state of mind.

You are invited to come together with others to rejoice in this Awakening and give thanks for the teachings of the Buddha, showing us the way to our own realisation of how things really are and thus, how to live in peace and harmony in our present-day world.

Everyone welcome.
