You and your family are invited to the annual Buddha's Birthday & Multicultural Festival, in celebration of the birth of Sakyamuni Buddha, the founder of Buddhism and the diversity of Australia. Entry is FREE and all are welcome to join in the festivities.
Presented by Fo Guang Shan Buddhist Temple WA, Buddha's Light International Association of WA and Nan Tien Institute - Wollongong, NSW, this exciting community celebration will take over the iconic Elizabeth Quay on the weekend of 14th and 15th April 2018.
It will spread the message of 'Respect & Tolerance, Consensus and Openness', promote harmonious co-existence amongst people, and provide visitors with an insight into Buddhist teachings and philosophy as a way of life to bring about peace and happiness.
Expect two fun-filled days of ceremonies and rituals, cultural displays and exhibits, multicultural entertainment, delicious vegetarian food, children's arts and crafts, a spectacular fireworks display and much, much more!
New for 2018 is an introduction to Tea Meditation, a practice which allows you to live in the present moment and experience joy in life through the aroma, taste and appreciation of the delicate tea.
