Vesak Day is the memorial of three events at a same time - the birth, the perfect enlightenment time and the death of the Siddhartha Gautama. In Indonesia, commonly all Buddhists celebrate Vesak with the central event at the Borobudur Temple. Borobudur is believed to be the gathering place of supernatural powers.
Regretly, i wasn't on good condition on those days to joining their complete ceremonial for three days (headache, sleepless and almost "overheated"). Started with ritual to obtain holy water and igniting the Vesak torch, whose flames are taken from the natural eternal flames at Mrapen in the village of Grobogan, end by walking from the Mendut Pawon to Borobudur.
Today, The Indonesian Buddhists Representatives Association, which leads the ceremony has designated the theme of Vesak 2555 BE as: “Seeking Happiness and Serenity Within Oneself”.
happy Vesak 2555 BE, May Lord Budha bless all of us.
