歡慶衛塞 Vesak Celebrations 2021

衛塞一詞,原是巴利文,譯成中文,是月圓的意思。衛塞日是指陽曆五月的月圓日。這也是紀念佛教教主釋迦牟尼佛降生,成道,涅槃三大聖事的日子。

佛陀是真理的發現者,并將真理揭示予世人眾生,期望世人能照佛所指示的佛法去修行,達到與佛同樣的悟境。我們慶祝衛塞節,要明白佛陀是一位自覺覺他、自利利他,為善無私的人。我們要學習佛陀的心意和行為。在自己,要培養智慧與慈悲,改善身心素質。在為人,要多做善事,幫助需要幫助的人,大家和諧地相處。因此,慶祝衛塞節,也是要再次的喚醒我們,循照佛陀所指示的真理去生活,以達到自覺覺他,自利利他的崇高目標。

The significance of Vesak lies with the Buddha and his universal peace message to mankind.

As we recall the Buddha and his Enlightenment, we are reminded of the most profound knowledge and insight which arose in him on the night of his Enlightenment. The teaching of the Buddha is open to all to see and judge for themselves.

The teaching of the Buddha appeals to reason and freedom of thought, recognising the dignity and potentiality of the human mind. It calls for equality, fraternity and understanding, exhorting its followers to avoid evil, to do good and to purify their minds.
