The Buddha’s Birthday Celebration and Exhibition will be held at Whittier Narrows Park in the Los Angeles Area, California on May 19, 2013.
Through these doors we foster and promote a better understanding of Buddhist history through a multi-media exhibit focused on Buddha’s Birthday celebrations in medieval China. As Buddhism travelled from India to China by way of the Silk Road, emperors, and devotees established more then 1000 temples and monasteries in Luoyang, all of which joined in celebration for an annual birthday parade.
