Buddha’s Birthday

23rd May 2010 – Chanh Giac Money Street Temple

On the 23rd of May 2010, The CCC Lion Dance Troupe performed at the Chanh Giac Money Street Temple to celebrate Buddha’s Birthday.

Buddha’s Birthday is a major Buddhist festival of the year as it celebrates the birth, enlightenment, and death of the Buddha on the one day. This day is marked on the first full moon of May.

The Money Street temple displayed a small statue of the baby Buddha in front of the alter in a small basin. This basin was filled with water and was decorated with flowers. This allowed devotees to pour water over the statue, as part of the Bathing of the Buddha Ritual. The significance of the act is to cleanse our body, speech and thoughts to eradicate anger, greed and ignorance in order to purify our minds to cultivate merits and wisdom. Many members of the Government attended this festival, including John Hyde MLA.

The CCC Lion Dance Troupe will like to once again thank members of the Chanh Giac Money Street Temple, for inviting us to this event, and allowing us the opportunity to perform at this holy event.
