Everyone know that yesterday was Vesak Day. The greatest celebration for Buddhist in the world. I also celebrate it, and this year I celebrate it at Candi Mendut and Candi Borobudur as the main place and one of the Icon of Buddhism. It was a whole day activity.

At first we pray at Candi Mendut and then we walk to Candi Borobudur. Many people were watching and followed to Borobudur. Peope are curious about this event because the President of Indonesia will come and in the end of the celebration we wil releasing thousands lampions. Last night, I sat beside a woman from Thailand. I asked her about Vesak Day there and she said that the celebration is on 1 June and it was different. “It is too crowded here?, I asked her. “Yeah..”, she answered me.

From what I see and what I feel after the event, I would say that we still need to learn about social and cultural understanding. I won’t say much about it, but I hope this short story, this little piece of mind could be something to be kept in mind that we have to respect others and not to invade the line.

once again, Happy Vesak. May the all beings would be happy.
