I’ve finally been able to make time to post our pictures from the Vesak celebration. We had a wonderful time and I was very happy Dawn was able to come with us this year. Another highlight of the day was seeing the wonderful, and always smiling Rev. Danny Fisher who immediately asked how our friend Bill in Chicago was doing. Made me smile ear to ear to be able to report the good news about Bill.
In the pictures, you’ll notice a set of beautifully carved statues ‘The 18 Lohans’. (BuddhaNet has a great explanation of each: http://www.buddhanet.net/e-learning/history/lohans.htm)
It was a perfect day.
Here is another shot the good Reverend took of Ian and I bathing the Buddha, while Dawn got video. (thanks again for the shot Danny)
