Wesak Day in Malaysia

Today I am celebrating the Wesak day here in Malaysia. This is my second time to celebrate this holiday. It means I am almost 2 years now here in KL.

Wesak day is very meaningful for the Buddhists, this is considered as the holiest day in the Buddhists calendar. Wesak day was annual national holiday here in Malaysia. Wesak day is one of the major festivals in Malaysia. Usually they celebrate at Vihara Temple at Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur. Before sunrise the devotee will gather at the temple to meditate and candlelight procession in the evening. Traditionally the night is devoted in meditating, chanting and praying to their Lord Buddha.

Wesak day commemorates three important events in the life of the Buddha - his birth, enlightenment and his achievement of Nirvana.

Happy Holiday!!
