Spokane Buddhist Temple to celebrate Buddha’s enlightenment


The Spokane Buddhist Temple will recognize the Buddha’s enlightenment with Bodhi Day celebration this weekend.

On Sunday (Dec. 7) at the 10:30 a.m. Sangha service the Rev. Christine Marr will give a special dharma talk and items related to the day will be on the najin (altar).

According to tradition, Buddha (Siddhartha) had forsaken years of extreme ascetic practices and resolved to sit under a Pipul tree and meditate until he found the root of all suffering, and how to liberate one’s self from it. He ultimately achieved enlightenment in this process. On Bodhi Day Buddhists celebrate the day the Buddha achieved this enlightenment.

All are welcome to attend the service, which will be held at the temple, 926. S. Perry.
