Vesak day with the Burmese community

The Burmese community in Singapore doesn’t make up a large portion as compare to other such as China, Philippines, Indonesia and India.

I understand Burmese main religion faith is Buddhism. I decide to spend my day at the Burmese Buddhist Temple to have a glimpse of the event on Vesak Day.

I was surprised by the number of people pouring into the temple for the prayer. Regardless of which temple it is.

There were plenty of Burmese volunteers offering drink, ice-cream and food for the public to feed on. Sharing is caring. I never see any of the volunteers have a feeling of hard work, it was smile all over the place. Am glad i came to the right place to do my photography.

The volunteer from Burmese were cooking non stop to share the delicious food with the devotees visiting the Burmese temple.

Inside the temple, the Burmese monks had their busiest day of their year. Chanting for everyone who wish to be bless. They “worked” relentless on behalf of the Buddha.

Buddha is our life teacher, even after he passed away for more than 2500 years. his teaching has been spread profusely all over the world. I kneeled before the great one in the hall, sense he is there for us, constantly teaching and reminding us about life.
