Buddha’s Birthday

Spread the love

I intended to bring my camera last Friday when we went to the gym so I can snap photos in the street. The national road is adorned with lanterns on different color this is already expected on month of May where Buddha’s birthday is celebrated, Prince Siddhartha Gautama. This is a holiday that is traditionally celebrated in Mahayana Buddhism.

As what I saw in the Korean calendar Buddha’s Birthday fall on May 28 and on that day the gym is closed as well as other establishments. Many temples provide free meals and tea on the day of Buddha’s birth to all visitors so if there’s temple near you, try to pay a visit. Sanche bibimbap are often provided for breakfast and lunch.
