Celebrating Buddha Day

Last week I was on retreat at Adhisthana, and whilst there we celebrated Buddha Day on the day of the full moon, as is traditional. For the evening puja the young women’s community currently living there along with Sanghadeva had created this beautiful flower strewn seat – a heap of grass, and neatly folded one of Sanghrakshita’s original monk’s robes and placed it on top.  We watched as the Buddha awakened.
