Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend

This day, celebrated by some on 2/8, marks the Buddha’s death and when he reached Nirvana at the age of 80. Nirvana is the end to all wanting, and thus the end to all suffering that craving brings about. Buddhists who observe Nirvana day often do so by examining their lives, in order to make changes needed to help them achieve perfect peace. Observances sometimes take place in monasteries, where people read the Parinibbana Sutta, one of the Buddhist texts that describes the Buddha’s final days.
