SGI-Spain Members Attend Vesak Celebration

On June 7, 2009, several SGI-Spain members attended a Vesak celebration organized by the Buddhist Association Joint Committee of Catalonia (CCEB). Vesak (pronounced way-sak) is a traditional event that commemorates the Buddha's birth, death and enlightenment. In one of a series of presentations, SGI-Spain members explained Shakyamuni's teaching that all people can attain enlightenment as expounded in the Lotus Sutra, as well as the humanist principles of Nichiren Buddhism inherited from the Lotus Sutra.
