Vassa: A blog for SCUBA


During the monsoon season when travel became difficult, Sakyamuni Buddha had his disciples settle in for three months until the rains passed. During this three month period, called Vassa, many of the normally solitary, eremitic monastics gathered together to take care of communal business, study the canon, and learn from each other’s travels.

SCUBA, the Southern California University Buddhist Association, is an umbrella group comprising of the Buddhist Associations of UCI, UCLA, UCR, and USC. For SCUBA, this blog is established for similar reasons to the Vassa. On this blog we want to settle in from the day’s or week’s work to take care of the communal business, study Buddhism, and learn from each other’s experiences. On this blog, we hope to promote a dialogue about Buddhism among students and learn from each other through thoughts, questions, ideas, and experiences.

I was wondering if you could tell me who owns the rights to the image of Buddha sitting under the Bodhi Tree on. I need permission from the rightful owner to use this image for a magazine article. Please email me on to confirm. This is rather urgent.
