The 8th day of the 4th month on the traditional East Asian lunar calendar is the date for Vesakha-puja (in Korean, Bul-tan-il), the annual celebration of the birth of the Buddha. This ceremony expresses our gratitude to the Buddha for his teachings and example, including “bathing the Buddha” by pouring water over a statue representing the infant Buddha.
This service is open to visitors. First-time attendees are encouraged to arrive by 6:45 to get oriented and acclimated.
Since space is limited, registration is required and limited to 6 participants.
