Come hear the story of the Buddha, the founder of Buddhism and learn about his early life and how he became a spiritual leader. The word Buddha means “I am awake” pertaining to the discovery of how he became free from suffering and an embodiment of compassion, wisdom, and peace. From here he went on to share these teachings with all beings everywhere.
