Spreading 2,500-year-old teachings

"A lotus grows out of mud, yet it remains unaffected, unstained by the dirty, stagnant water. You are lay people; you live in the world and yet you can lead a spiritual life. It is spiritual values that bring real beauty, colour and fragrance to human life. Without spiritual values, human life is like a flower tree without flowers!"
So preached Gautam Buddha more than 2,500 years ago.

What is Buddha Jayanti?Buddha Jayanti or Buddha Purnima is the most sacred festival of Buddhists. It is the birth anniversary of Lord Buddha and falls on the full moon of the fourth lunar month (month of Vaisakh).The day commemorates three important events of Buddha's life, his birth, his enlightenment and his attainment of Nirvana.
