On the full moon day of Vesak,
A Prince was born,
In the garden of Lumbini,
Under the flowering tree,
The kingdom rejoiced His arrival,
Siddhattha - wish fulfilled
Was the name given.

On the full moon day of Vesak,
Enlightened was He,
Under the Great Bodhi Tree,
Craving and defilements has ceased in Him,
The world rejoiced in His attainment,
Breaking the bond of rebirth,
A Samma-Sambuddha was He.

On the full moon day of Vesak,
A great being has passed on,
Under the twin Sala trees of Kushinara,
Disciples near and far, beings high and low,
Bow in reverence to the great teacher,
Who left a legacy for all,
One who sees the Dhamma sees Him.

Buddha Day, 7 May 2020

Happy Wesak Day 2020- 2564

Wesak Day is important to Buddhist the world over as it marks the three (3) stages in the Buddha’s life; His Birth, Enlightenment and Passing Away (parinibbāna in pali). The birth of Siddhattha Gotama (the Buddha-to-be), his Enlightenment at the age of 35 and Parinibbāna at the age of 80.

Through his death, the Buddha left the world with his final lessons on achieving freedom from earthly existence and the cycle of suffering.

Begin your Wesak celebration with the practice of Giving, Character Building, Cultivation and doing Service.

➢ The act of Giving (generosity) is an essential Buddhist practice which brings happiness. Donating essential supplies to Buddhist centres, orphanages, old aged homes is a form of giving and helping.

➢ Character building is practiced when we commit to follow the moral precepts laid down by the Buddha. One can consciously practice loving kindness and non-injury in thoughts, words and deeds during this period in our interaction with family, friends, and colleagues.

➢ Doing Service is giving freely one’s time and energy by volunteering one’s self for any activities organised by Buddhist centres. Teaching is also a form of giving to spread the teachings of the Buddha.

➢ Cultivation of spirituality is done by listening to sermons, chanting and meditation. Please allow time to reflect, time to appreciate and to assimilate the intensity of the chanting and blessings received.

【2020年 ‘佛陀日’ 主题 :静心观无常】

今天是佛历 2564 年的第一天,亦是全世界佛教徒庆祝佛陀诞生、证悟、涅槃之日,称为佛陀日。但因为配合行动管制令,今年的庆典都搬到线上了,或该称为 “数码佛陀日”。但是万变仍不离其宗,佛陀日的核心目的就是让我们反思人生的意义。

人类在过去数个月经历多个大自然灾害,包括野火燎原,火山爆发,新冠疫情爆发,但人类只能无助地看着它发生。而人们的贪嗔痴也为社会带来了全国性甚至全球性的政治、经济动荡,不断的加激人们受苦,这正印证佛陀所说的,有生即是苦。

天灾人祸不断,令人不禁要问,人类是否还有希望?人类是否还可找到祥和快乐?人们又如何可静下心来面对这场巨变?

答案是可以。自 2600 年前, 人们可以从佛陀的教导中净化身心,体验快乐, 而且当下即能得到快乐。人们有太长时间一直依赖外力获取快乐和安全感,但佛陀则教导,快乐要向内得。 在贪嗔痴的推动下,人们只能游走在 “利、衰、毁、誉、称、讥、苦、乐” 之间。依佛陀教导,透过慈悲喜舍,不但可以转化生命,还可散播快乐。

真正的快乐秘诀就在于心智的训练,令心不轻易受环境所动,就如荷花一般,出于污泥而不染。

我们无法改变世界,但可以改变自己。如果每个人都作出同样的努力,这世界将随我们而改变,疫情 所衍生的新常态就是一个例子。只要每个人都保持积极,合作的态度,我们很快就可以让疫情结束。

在此祈愿大家培育忍耐的心,以静心观无常的发生。

祝大家,佛陀日快乐!
