Vesak was on 24/5/13. We went to the celebrations yesterday at the Buddhist centre in Cairns.
The statue in the middle is the Buddha.
What a beautiful gong!
It was a lovely evening and we had yummy vegetarian food after the devotional ceremony.
The only setback was going home to a dog who has not happy about being left at home. Tara was quite unimpressed; next year, I think I’ll take her.
