The Buddha's attainment of Enlightenment is described as the "Mara-Vijaya" - the Victory over Mara, who represents the forces of Greed, Hatred and Ignorance present in the unenlightened mind. Through this great victory the Buddha became finally and irreversibly liberated from these destructive forces. Throughout his life the Buddha then showed countless others how to progress gradually through many lesser victories towards this final victory.
Come and practise meditation and ritual in our spectacular Shrine Room filled with images painted by Aloka and find out how the Buddha's Great Victory can inspire us to transform our lives.
The day will start at 10:30am and finish at 4:30pm.
