Yesterday was the International Buddhist Day (April 8th). It was Gautama Buddha’s birthday. But I think the International Buddhist Day should be celebrated on the Boddhi Day (Dec. 8th). Buddhi Day is the day Gautama Siddhattha became a buddha.

These days, in Christianity, Christmas is more focused. But Easter was/is still the most significant holiday. A series of the celebrations around Easter is commemorating the significant events, which made Christianity a powerful region as we see today.

We should think about what made Buddhism the “Buddhism”.

Anyway, I am looking forward to seeing you all at the online session.
