This is a celebration of Lord Buddha’s birth, enlightenment and salvation from the material world. The Mahayana Buddhists gather in temples to pay their respects to their supreme Lord. It is a solemn scene to witness as monks chant hymns in the dancing light of butter lamps. You can be a part of this festival in May or early June.
