600 years ago, at the foot of the Himalayas,
there was a beautiful tree of no sorrow,
under which Prince Siddhartha was born,
with lotuses sprang open under his feet as he walked.
Since then, the human world has been filled with brightness and hope.

Prince Siddhartha, the world’s first musical on the life of the Buddha, was adapted based on Venerable Master Hsing Yun’s best seller – The Biography of Sakyamuni Buddha. Through elegantly composed English lyrics and music, the moving storyline leads the audience through the tunnel of time to the Buddha’s birthplace, India, and explores his life and path to awakening.

In order to best present the Buddha’s life from his birth to Nirvana, more than 50 artists from the FGS Academy of Art Philippines have been invited to perform the musical to the American audience. The event also marks the beginning of the yearlong celebration of Hsi Lai Temple’s 25th anniversary.

Thanks for joining Hsi Lai Temple in this heart-purifying journey!

Tickets will be available through Ticketmaster starting Wednesday Oct 16th or at Fo Guang Shan Hsi Lai Temple!
