Vesak Poya Program – Sat 29 May 2021

Categories: Temple News

Dear Members,

Vesak Sil Program has been scheduled for Saturday, 29 May 2021.

We all know the risks that we are still facing due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Fortunately, WA is the safest place so far, however, the threats still persist and all our safety very much depends on how well we comply with our social responsibilities. Therefore, the SLSBS in consultation with Maha Sangha has decided to celebrate this year’s Vesak festival without large gatherings. This decision was taken with much care and to protect our social standing as a responsible Buddhist association.

Subject to not declaring further risks by the authorities prior to Poson Poya day,  we have decided to have a much larger celebration for Poson Poya (on 26 June 2021) with Poson decorations etc.  We shall inform you of the Poson Poya program in due course.

As informed above this year’s Vesak festival at the temple will be restricted to the following items only:

1 Vesak Sil Program (starts at 7:00 am and finishes at 4:45 pm)
2 Vesak Dhamma Deshana (5.30 pm to 6.30 pm)
3 Vesak lanterns by Dhamma Schoolchildren

We much appreciate your understanding during these difficult times and much value all you support shown to the temple, our Maha Sangha and SLSBS at this time.

With Meththa,
