Party for Buddha’s Birthday at the Square, Mississauga 2013

Buddhism in Canada Events

Mississauga’s Celebration Square will be the place to be on Sunday, June 1st as 30 GTA Buddhist temples host a joint, outdoor Vesak celebration for Buddha’s Birthday. The event is organized by the West End Buddhist Centre, Foguang Shan and Phap Van (who are hosting). The event runs from 3:30 – 7:30 pm. Highlights will include chanting ceremonies, the Bathing the Buddha ritual, traditional music and a martial arts demonstration performed by the Shaolin Cultural Centre of Canada to close out the show.

Toronto has held Vesak celebrations in the past over many years, but this is the first joint celebration outside the downtown core of the city, so it is a significant historical development (in addition to promising to be a lot of fun).
