BUDDHA’S birthday celebrations at the Fo Guang Shan Buddhist temple in Botany on Sunday will be a day for all cultures and religions to come together, the organisers say.

“It’s to foster a better understanding of other cultures and religious groups,” says temple manager Rev Man Wang.

“Buddhism accepts diversity and teaches people to work for the happiness of all people regardless of their faith, race and background.”

This is the third year the festival has been held there and thousands of families from all walks of life have attended the events.
