Happy Vesak Day!


I visit Fo Guang Shan (Singapore) monastery for the first time today with my family for the Vesak Day celebrations.

The extremely hot weather did not deter thousands of devotees from joining long queues for prayer offerings. Our elders went for the "bathing Buddha" ritual.


While I waited for them, I jostled with the crowds for some photos of the beautiful floral displays. :)

Have a blessed Vesak Day!
