Today is Buddha's Birthday

For Catholics and Christians, today is Black Saturday, still a day of mourning as Christ died Good Friday and will be risen on Easter Sunday.

For Buddhists, on the other hand, today is a Blessed Day as this is the day that Prince Siddharta, who was to be the founder of Buddhism, was born!

Most of the women in my family are Buddhists, so as obedient children and grandchildren, we're all trooping to the temple to "bathe" the baby Siddharta and ask for blessings. I haven't since 2005. My son will be offering flowers in the ceremony.

I pray that we'll be having peaceful elections and that we'll get a good leader who will put his country and his people above his own selfish ambitions.
