Hello everyone? long time no see… it’s been a while since our last posting. Several days ago, the buddhism people celebrated their Waisak day. In Indonesia, when the Waisak day is come, people are gathering to Borobudur temple. Well, as i said in one of my posting about Borobudur temple, the temple itself was built in the 8th century, and the tradition about Waisak was held eversince 1953 by The Boan An or Bhikkhu Ashin Jinarakkhita as the ancestor of the Budhist in Indonesia. About 1000 lanterns was carried by all the people to illuminate the west area of Borobudur temple. The athmosphere was so unique and the view was beautiful. Just like the other years before, there’re about 10.000 buddhism whose celebrated Waisak in Borobudur temple. In 4-5 may 2012 the eternal flame was taken from Mrapen Kabubaten Grobogan, and the holy water was taken from Umbul Jumprit Kabupaten Temanggung. Here it is the picture that i took from googling… :)) [aci]
