Wesak Celebration Day 2017   Leave a comment


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 Celebration Day 2017

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.
