 and a purified mind to remind people that "it's easy to wash away physical dirt, but much more difficult to cleanse one's inner impurity, greed, anger, and ignorance. Only a pure and focused mind reaches enlightenment." In the Buddha’s Birthday Celebration
 Ceremony, we are inspired and encouraged to reflect on the meaning of our own birth and death, and to truly get to know the Buddha waiting to be born in each of us.</font></span></p>
