 Celebration of Buddha’s Birth, Enlightenment and Paranirvana 
 
“No one saves us but ourselves” The Buddha
 
  On his enlightenment at the age of thirty-five in Bodhgaya, the Buddha said
 “Profound peace, natural simplicity, uncompounded luminosity, I have found a nectar-like Dharma.”*
*Dharma means truth
When Buddha lay dying in a forest grove in Kushinagara, surrounded by five hundred of his disciples, he said to them with his last breath: “It is in the nature of all things that take form to dissolve again. Strive with your whole being to attain perfection.”
