I wonder what my fellow Buddhist friends would wish for on this year’s Wesak Day. There had been surprises like the political Tsunami on March 8, and disasters like earthquakes and cyclones in our neighbouring countries.
What would you wish for?
World Peace? A World Free of Natural Disasters? Read: Burma and China.Freedom for Tibetans? Freedom for Burma? Or simply each one’s own liberation?
Whatever it is, I wish all Buddhists a HAPPY WESAK DAY.
Look, even these politicians do not want to be left out.
They’ve come together from various political divides, and ceased fire (albeit a moment only) when they visited the 113-year-old Buddhist Maha Vihara in Brickfields yesterday (The STAR).
Was there a glimpse of eternity in that moment?
We do not know. We cannot know.
