Happy Wesak Day
Today is Wesak Day and I am glad to be back in my hometown, Melaka where I get to spend today visiting Seck Kia Eenh's temple with my family. There was a pindapata (offering of food) to monks this morning. Yesterday evening, we joined the procession of beautiful coloured floats (like the one in the photo here) from Seck Kia Eenh Temple through the streets of Melaka. The children even had the chance to bath baby Buddha at a temple near our house just now.
I hope my family will always receive the blessings of Lord Buddha.
"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
