I wish all my Buddhist friends great mindfulness and peace on this Wesak Day and days to come.
On this day and all days,
May we let our egos melt away.
Nothing in life is permanent, anyway.
Attachment is pain.
Desires bring great sufferings.
And the wheel of karma never stops turning.
Today is your day, tomorrow mine.
When does it end?
Revenge is bitter, forgiveness sweet.
So be mindful, peaceful, and loving, my friends.
