Vesak in Ottawa grew from that humble event to bring together all the communities into an annual May event to celebrate Buddha’s Birth, Enlightenment and Passing away at Ottawa City Hall.

May in Ottawa is Vesak and Asian Heritage Month; Asian Heritage Month proclaimed by Parliament in 2002, and Vesak Day by the City of Ottawa last year. The United Nations has also endorsed Vesak Day, which commemorates the birth, enlightenment and passing of the Buddha. His teachings on peace, compassion, equality, loving kindness and generosity 2,550 years ago are now celebrated in Vesak celebrations around the world.

Meditation
සිත දියුණු කරන භාවනා

 

Mindfulness Meditation is a non-sectarian, research-based form of meditation derived from a 2,500 year old Buddhist practice called Vipassana or Insight Meditation. It is a form of meditation designed to develop the skill of paying attention to our inner and outer experiences with acceptance, patience, and compassion. Mindfulness is non-judgmental, open-hearted, friendly, and inviting of whatever arises in awareness and can be a wonderful tool for people to deal with day to day stresses.
