Vesak Day

Every year, thousands of Buddhist monks gather in Borobudur Temple to perform a blissful ceremony called Praksadina. As a tribute to birth, death, and the enlightenment of Siddhartha Gautama (known to most of us as Buddha), Vesak Day is one of the most popular rituals in Indonesia. Visitors are more than welcome to watch and observe this ceremony. The first ritual is Pindapta, and continues on with a cavalcade from Mendut Temple to Borobudur Temple. With a momentous release of gorgeous lanterns into the sky as a symbol of letting go as the closing ceremony, this event gives you a chance to witness tranquility at its best. As Buddha has taught once: the highest form of happiness will only come when humans let go of their longings and desires.
