The believers lit the candle with fire from their hearts. They carried the hopes and expectations of the believers.
One candle after another, the believers all secretly wished their hopes will flow down the path to reach Buddha high above, and he will grant all of their wishes.
Hope is what keeps us alive. Feeling hopeful with my Samsung S6.
Hands up, palms up to the skies, this happy Buddha looks ready to shower all his blessings generously on the believers underneath. What a lucky lady. Feeling tickled with my Samsung S6.
Boy: Please Buddha, help me study hard and pass my exams.
Man: Please Buddha, let me recover from this illness.
Man (in black and white pix): Please Buddha,……
Elderly lady: Please Buddha, ……
If not for religion, what can they seek solace in when they are troubled? Feeling comforted with my Samsung S6.
Scoop a small cup of blessed water and pour it over the little Buddha three times. Cleanse our body, heart and soul. An essential ritual on Vesak Day.
If religion is the opium of the people, then I approve of this drug. It is one of the most benevolent religions which preaches good deeds begets good deeds, pass it on to spread goodwill. The buddhists are out in full force on Vesak Day today. Soaking in the atmosphere with my Samsung S6.
