One night in Phor Kark See Temple
Today is Vesak Day. I jointed the volunteer group of Phor Kark See Temple to help up in selling drinks. By entering the side of the temple, there are gorgeous lotus deco being lightens up.
In “3 Steps, 1 Bow” ceremony, devotees circumambulate the perimeter of the temple, taking every 3 steps and one bow, while chanting the name of the Buddha. This event started on Vesak Day eve at 10pm until the actual day morning 7am.
Thousand of lanterns lighten up every corner of the temple.
In the Hall of Great Compassion, devotees queuing to pay respect to Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva.
On the other hands , “3 steps, 1 Bow” ceremony still going on and on every single minutes.
Cart stores selling Buddhism related things are overwhelming with crown and heats.
Little Buddhas are happily smiling to us.
Comfort foods are serving for free thru out the whole Vesak Day event.
This picture was captured in the morning 8am, a woman pushing her Granny- I guess, has shown virtues thru out, until the end of the ceremony.
And this is the time for the lotus awakening.
Know the enlightenment of this great man.
Understand the path he went through.
Understand his teachings with wisdom, and
Be mindful on this special day.
