Buddha Day

When: Sat., May 18, 2-4 p.m. 2013

It's 2,557 years later, and as with J.C., folks are still celebrating the Buddha's birthday. For those unfamiliar, the observance is called Vesak, which "marks the birth, enlightenment and parinirvana, or passing away of the Buddha's physical body." It's like a bris meets a funeral! OK, far from it really, but find out what it's really like from 2 to 4 today at Marmalade at Smokebrush (219 W. Colorado Ave. #210, smokebrush.org) with local teachers who represent various traditions. They'll tell stories, guide meditation, and host Bhagavan Kirtan chanting and children's activities alongside music and a food sampling. The suggested donation is $5. — Matthew Schniper
