Today is the trifold anniversary
Of Buddha Sakya Muni.
He was born, got enlightened
And attained parinirvana
On the full moon days of this month
26 centuries before now.
This is the time for us to remember that great apostle of peace.
The teacher who taught us to train
Our mind and awaken within us
The great wisdom and compassion.
