Wesak Celebration Day 2017

Wishing all of you celebrating Buddhists a Happy Wesak from the Procession Chairman (the blogger) apart from being the photographer as the only role as some presume me to be. I am the Organizing Chairman of the Sub-Committee organizing the Procession around George Town with over 20 over organizations with over 10 Floats. As photography is my passionate hobby, I shall be seen with a camera with me. I am also the Vice Chairman of the Penang Wesak Main Celebrations Committee too.

Wesak Day is observed by devotees to celebrate Buddha’s Birthday enlightenment and achievement of Nirvana. From very early in the morning devotees flock to temples to meditate as well as participate in candle-lit processions. As a sign of benevolence, doves are set free and other charitable acts are also performed by devotees such as providing free meals. Monks usually gather to chant sacred sutras all day long.

Hpaung Daw U Pagoda of Inle Lake, Shan State, Myanmar ~ Take 3   Leave a comment


Hpaung Daw U Pagoda of Inle Lake, Shan State, Myanmar ~ Take 3

Hpaung Daw U Pagoda

Hpaung Daw U Pagoda, IPA: [pʰàʊɴ dɔ̀ ʔú pʰəjá]), also spelt Hpaung Daw Oo or Phaung Daw Oo) is a notable Buddhist site in Myanmar (formerly Burma), located on the Inle Lake in Shan State.

Surrounding the Pagoda, and in the basement are shops selling traditional Shan and Burmese merchandise.

Images

The pagoda houses five small gilded images of Buddha, which have been covered in gold leaf to the point that their original forms cannot be seen. The gold-leaf application to such excess is relatively recent. Old photographs hanging on the monastery walls show some of the images in a more pristine form. It is reported that some gold has been removed on occasion to reduce its mass. Although the monastery is open to all for veneration, only men are permitted to place gold leaf on the images. Another part of the ritual for pilgrims is to place a small robe or thingan around the images, and to take the robe back to their houses and place it on their own altar as a token of respect for the Buddha and his teachings.
