Well for those who dont know every year on the full moon of May people around the world celebrate the birth, enlightement and passing of Gautama Buddha.,4043,0,0,1,0

For those who do know (if there are any here?) what will you be doing this Vesak?

This will be my first Vesak as someone whos been learning more and more about Buddhism the past 6 months(even though ive prety much followed its philosophy since high school), so for me it will be a day of meditation, college, studdying of Buddhism and Gautama Buddha and of cource being uber nice to people and giving to charity.

Happy Vesak.

I will be a 'newly budded bodhi'!
My 9 years is UP!

Thank you for the info. I had never heard of this at all. And for me it is significant because my moon is in Taurus.

What other Buddhist holy days are there during the year? What else ya know?

The 16th marks the sainthood of Jeanne D'Arc and her feast day is the 30th which is the day she was executed (she was captured on the 23rd of this month and tried for a week).
