Happy Vesak Day

Happy Vesak Day to Buddhist readers!

Besides receiving blessings at the temples this joyous time of the year, I hope Buddhists would give some thoughts to the poor and the needy - especially those who had recently suffered calamities like the cyclone in Myanmar and the huge earthquake in South West China where tens of thousands unfortunately lost their lives and millions have lost their homes.

Give whatever you can to help the less fortunate, if you have not done so already. The donation would add to your merits on this auspicious day, whether or not you are a Buddhist, Daoist, Confucian or of any other doctrine.
