Today 15th of February is the NehanE - the ceremony in memory of the Buddha entering Nirvana. In Sogenji the Roshi gives a poem for this occasion, and the ceremony following is the walking Ryogonshu.

Here you can see the stupas in Kushinagara where it is said that the Buddha lay down between two sala trees.

And this is the huge statue of the Buddha inside the Paranirvana Temple.
