Celebrating Buddha’s Birthday

The public was invited to celebrate the Buddha’s Birthday today at the Five Buddha Temple in Amsterdam, New York. The World Peace and Health Organization sponsored a celebration that included an introductory discussion about Memorial Day and Buddha, followed by costumed dance, ballet, Chinese Opera and a demonstration of Tai Chi. Refreshments were served after the performances. It was a great way to start the day.

One thought on “Celebrating Buddha’s Birthday

  1. Pat

    As a Roman Catholic who later converted to Buddhism (totally different sect), I find the church stained glass windows an interesting dichotomy in a Buddhist Temple. Brings back memories of mornings spent in St Mary’s church, but in a whole new manner that I can identify with. Great pictures, thanks for posting them!
