WESAK AT LUA CHEIA

IMG_9035_edited

To me, one of the most interesting aspects of the Santo Daime religion is its delight in celebrating the teachers and teachings of other religions. Céu da Lua Cheia, one of the several Santo Daime churches in the São Paulo area, makes an annual festival day or "Wesak" to celebrate the life and teachings of the Buddha.



People came from near and far to sing the "Lua Cheia" (Full Moon) collection of hymns received by Padrinho Lêo Artése

and to learn from the wisdom passed on to us from the Buddha via the spiritual lineage of Padrinho Sebastião

and the force of the Santo Daime



This force this force
This force has the power
To show all mysteries
Of the universe to you


Viva Mestre Irineu!

Viva Padrinho Sebastião!

Viva Buddha!
