Buddhists in Sri Lanka celebrate the Wesak festival
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
During this time, there are many pandols, and wesak festivals, like Buddhist songs being sung, people go to the Temple to worship and meditate the whole two days, some people give out what is called Dansal, which they organise to distribute food, tea and drinks... these are for the tired people who flock to the city to see the wesak illuminations.
Throughout these two days many buddhist sermons are conducted in all the temples... and this is a time for reflection, and prayer.
These are some of my yearly decorations and illuminations during the Wesak Season.
