Yesterday, I had a meaningful Wesak day celebration.
Early in the morning, I participated as a volunteer in temple.
It was so great as I can contribute to community, to serve is better than to receive.
I am so happy to see many people brought their parent, children, family members to pay respect to Buddha.
In the evening, Sis and I went to participate the candle light procession.
It was raining before the event, it was great as this cool down the superb hot weather and give us the fresh breeze during the procession.
It was so crowded in the temple, we spent a great effort to squeeze in.
More than 10,000 people participated in the procession.
Total distance: more than 13 km, we spent more than 4 hours on walking.
I felt the pain and discomfort in my body as it was a long journey. However, I kept reminded myself that Buddha, our great master, kept walking in order to give valuable teaching. My discomfort was nothing.
I made a vow that I’ll continually to purify my body, speech and mind as a biggest Respect and Gratitude to Buddha’s teaching. I vow to be a Good Person and do my best to create good karma, not only benefit to myself and also to all beings.
I do hope that you also make a vow, to be a good person. We need more good person who do good deeds, give good speech and have good thought all the time to create a pure land in this world.
Join me on the journey of candle light procession….
