Flash-back to Siddhartha Musical held in March 2010 ~ Part 3

It started off with the unstable internet for the past few days as I cannot access my WordPress site regularly so the posting became very erratic. So to pass the time, it was either watching TV or do some spring-cleaning. I did the latter and found a rather new WD hard disk in a box and I tested by putting it in my Archgon adapter. Hold and behold, it contained some of my old photographs. I extracted these files and re-edit these old concert photographs taken in March 2010.

These photographs were from the Prince Siddhartha Musical held in March 2010 at Dewan Sri Pinang, Penang. Prince Siddhartha become the Buddha after his Enlightenment.

Hope you like and enjoy these shots.

Buddhism ( /ˈbʊdɪzəm/ or /ˈbdɪzəm/) is a religion[ and dharma that encompasses a variety of traditionsbeliefs and spiritual practices largely based on teachings attributed to the Buddha. Buddhism originated in Ancient Indiasometime between the 6th and 4th centuries BCE, from where it spread through much of Asia, whereafter it declined in Indiaduring the Middle Ages. Two major extant branches of Buddhism are generally recognized by scholars: Theravada (Pali: “The School of the Elders”) and Mahayana (Sanskrit: “The Great Vehicle”). Buddhism is the world’s fourth-largest religion, with over 500 million followers or 7% of the global population, known as Buddhists.

Buddhist schools vary on the exact nature of the path to liberation, the importance and canonicity of various teachings and scriptures, and especially their respective practice. Practices of Buddhism include taking refuge in the Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha, study of scriptures, observance of moral preceptsrenunciation of craving and attachment, the practice of meditation (including calm and insight), the cultivation of wisdomloving-kindness and compassion, the Mahayana practice of bodhicitta and the Vajrayana practices of generation stage and completion stage.

In Theravada the ultimate goal is the cessation of the kleshas and the attainment of the sublime state of Nirvana, achieved by practicing the Noble Eightfold Path (also known as the Middle Way), thus escaping what is seen as a cycle of sufferingand rebirthTheravada has a widespread following in Sri Lanka and Southeast Asia.

Mahayana, which includes the traditions of Pure LandZenNichiren BuddhismShingon and Tiantai (Tendai), is found throughout East Asia. Rather than Nirvana, Mahayana instead aspires to Buddhahood via the bodhisattva path,[note 2] a state wherein one remains in the cycle of rebirth to help other beings reach awakening.

Vajrayana, a body of teachings attributed to Indian siddhas, may be viewed as a third branch or merely a part of Mahayana. Tibetan Buddhism, which preserves the Vajrayana teachings of eighth century India, is practiced in regions surrounding the HimalayasMongolia and Kalmykia. Tibetan Buddhism aspires to Buddhahood or rainbow body.

Interesting fact to note from Wikipedia:-

The internet in my home is still behaving unsteadily and inconstantly. I have to schedule the future postings –  a few days in advance. I shall view your WordPress posts when I am able to as my outstanding Hotmail emails swell to over 32,000 in number. Apologies.

My latest post on Facebook to express my deep disappointment on local Malaysian viewers. i took this photograph in 2010 and just re-edit today  20 August, 2017. This photograph is from a below average photographer as white foreign photographer is always regarded as better photographer by some locals. Sad to have such narrow-minded mindset in such modern times! It is very disheartening and disincentive.

PASS Charity Concert at Dewan Sri Pinang on Friday, September 18, 2015 In a Charity Concert to raise another RM100,00.00 to build a budgetted expenditure of RM2 Million to build animal shelters for 1,500 dogs and 1,000 cats. IJM donated RM100,00.00.

Extracted from Facebook:-

Penang Animal Sanctuary Society
Non-profit Organisation
PASS is a proposed no-kill animal shelter, recently granted building plan approval, and currently undergoing land clearance and constructions.

PASS is formed by a group of animal lovers, with the intention to provide a solution for the independent animal rescuers in Penang island. PASS is NOT an animal rescue group.

The sanctuary has recently been granted the building plan approval and are currently undergoing land clearance and site constructions. Members currently channel all effort towards raising fund preparing for the building cost. Many also voluntary work with rescuers and support them in the form of food for the animals at their own expenses. As we understand that many rescuers are no longer able to take in more animals, we also assist public in need to publicise notices on animals available for adoption.

We try our very best but may not always have the resources to verify and update the adoption status. Kindly contact the respective rescuer/owner listed in each adoption album for more info, to check if the animal is still available, or to arrange for adoption. We thank you for your kind understanding.

Attn Rescuers: If you’d like to publish adoption notice here through us, kindly be ready to be the contact person, or at least have someone who can be the contact person. Your adoption notice will be published verbatim and we will not be able to become the contact person on behalf of you. If you have published an adoption notice here through us, do update us on the status (if the animal is being adopted, etc.), so potential adopters can have the latest info. This will also help to give other animals a chance to be adopted.

Disclaimer: PASS will only assist in publicising adoption/foster notices. All other forms of notices (eg: fund raising) will not be attended, and will be conducted by individual rescuer. This is to avoid irresponsible parties from abusing PASS’s name to conduct fake fund raising event.

We thank you for your great work and kind co-operation!
