Vesak Celebration Video
Vesak is the celebration of the birth, passing and enlightenment of the historical Buddha. This is a segment of a larger documentary on sacred rivers: a look at different river rituals involving religious, spiritual and cultural ceremonies on U.S. Rivers. The celebration in Pittsburgh involves the releasing of water into the Allegheny River.
