Enlighten Up!

Once a year – on either February 8 or February 15 (depending on cultural preference), Buddhists around the world celebrate Parinnirvana Day. It is a commemoration of the moment at which Buddha left his physical body behind, achieving a deeper, truer, more transcendent state of being and understanding often referred to as “nothingness.” The holiday reminds followers that death is liberation – from suffering, longing and any sort of anger or displeasure. No matter your spiritual preference, honor your inner Buddhist today, by taking a few minutes out to meditate. Clear your mind in order to commune with the world and its energies and you may not achieve Nirvana, but you’ll undoubtedly experience a much needed moment of peace.
