Happy Buddha Day!

Pela tradição budista tibetana, comemora-se hoje a iluminação de Buddha.
Que todos os seres possam alcançar a iluminação!

Buddha Day celebrates the three days that Siddhartha Gautama sat under the bodhi tree in Bodh Gaya, India and attained enlightenment over 2,500 years ago.
On the third day of sitting, Gautama awoke and saw the world and began sharing with others.

He became Buddha, the awakened one.


Be lamps unto yourselves.
Be refuges unto yourselves.
Take yourself no external refuge.

Hold fast to the truth as a lamp.
Hold fast to the truth as a refuge.
Look not for a refuge in anyone besides yourselves.

Happy Buddha Day!

Do no harm.
Work toward the benefit of all.
Maintain a pure outlook on all things.

All beings are potential Buddhas, all sounds are sacred as Mantra, all thoughts as clear as wisdom, and all phenomena as whole and full as the Buddha field…

OM MANI PADME HUM
