About eVesak

eVesak is a celebration of the Buddha’s Birthday and the diversity of Buddhism in Australia! Check out full length videos submitted by Buddhist temples and organisations from all around Australia.

In the past year many of us have grappled with uncertainty, loss and change. Many have been comforted and supported by the Buddha’s teachings. Buddha’s Birthday is an occasion for us to come together as a community to share our recent experiences and offer prayers, healing and hope to the world.

We invite you to celebrate with us and Buddhists from all around Australia.

We also invite you to make a donation to support this event and Australia’s Buddhist councils in their invaluable service to the community.


Meet the amazing communities who are sponsoring for eVesak this year!


We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land. We pay our respects to the Elders past and present, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the culture and hopes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the nation.

Hope you enjoy the event! Your donations and participation is what makes eVesak better year by year! Thank you!
