On May 15th 2022, residents of Plum Village Monastery in France celebrated the holiday of Vesak which commemorates the life and enlightenment of the Buddha. We took this opportunity to ask some of the monks and nuns at Plum Village how they relate to the Buddha and the ceremony of Vesak.

Malam Suci Waisak (The Holy Vesak Night)
The Plum Village monastic choir came together to record the Indonesian song Malam Suci Vesak (The Holy Vesak Night), as an offering for Vesak day. This is a song that is commonly sung in Indonesia on Vesak day to commemorate the Buddha’s birth, enlightenment and passing. The English translation is provided in the song. Enjoy!
