This morning, I celebrated Wesak day by contributing my little effort to be volunteer in monastery. I am touched whenever I saw parent brought their children and also elderly parent to monastery to pay respect to our great teacher, Buddha. More amazing that children can sit quietly for about 3 hours until the total ceremony ending. Today, I saw an elderly uncle on wheel chair, always coughing, can’t talk, walk and also managed himself. His children brought him to the monastery and even he was sick, he still insist to attend the full ceremony. What a great spirit!
As every year routine, Sis & I will give support to the Wesak day float procession. We were indulged ourselves in the positive, happiness, peace and calm. We are grateful to our great master for sharing the beautiful lessons and show us the beautiful path. So, we can walk the path together with faith.
“As a lotus flower is born in water, grows in water and rises out of water to stand above it unsoiled, so I, born in the world, raised in the world, having overcome the world, live unsoiled by the world.” By Buddha
To all my Buddhist friends, “Happy Wesak day”, may your wisdom life grow!
