Buddha’s birthday is one of the biggest Buddhist celebrations in South Korea. Every year, Golgulsa welcomes visitors and Templestay participants to join in our Buddha’s birthday celebrations.
Buddha’s birthday is a special holiday, and it is filled with warmth and light. At the temple, we are already stringing Lotus Lanterns all along the temple road. On the evening of Buddha’s birthday, we will light all the lanterns and fill the temple evening with the beautiful glow of enlightenment. Lotus lanterns are, after all, a symbol of enlightenment.
This year, Buddha’s birthday is Tuesday May 6th. Come and celebrate with us~~~
