Buddha Day Celebrations FREE
Every year since 2004 there has been a celebration of Buddha Day in front of the Museum’s Sultanganj Buddha. It was initiated by the Museum jointly with the West Midlands Buddhist Council and has involved many of Birmingham’s different Buddhist groups. These follow traditions deriving from Thailand, Burma, Sri Lanka, India, Tibet, Japan and Vietnam.
The procession will start in the Round Room at 12.30 and make its way to the Faith in Birmingham Gallery. The format of the day always includes presentation of flowers and traditional chanting in a variety of languages (including English) according to the national styles of the monks and laypeople taking part in the ceremony.
