The Buddha’s Birthday Education Project (BBEP) aims to inspire and educate people about the historic birth of the Sakyamuni Buddha and, in doing so integrate Buddhist wisdom within a modern context.
In 2016, BBEP brings to life the story of 25 years of Buddha’s Birthday Festivals in Australia, and uses a range of innovative mediums to unite the community in this great celebration.
