Bathing Buddha Ceremony in Bruma Oriental City

Nanhua Temple had a “Bathing Buddha Ceremony” in Bruma Oriental City on 7 May 2016. The Ceremony was held to Celebrate the Buddha’s Birthday and Mother’s day. Over a hundred followers attended the Ceremony.

The ritual of ‘bathing the Buddha’ is conducted every year on Buddha’s birthday. This practice has been inherited from the Buddha times and is still observed by Buddhist around the world.

This ritual highlights a universal message that “it’s easy to wash away physical dirt but it’s much more difficult to cleanse one’s ‘inner dirt’ of greed, anger and ignorance.”

Legend records that when Prince Siddhartha was born, there were extraordinary and auspicious signs heralding his birth.They describe the sky as being clear with brilliant sunshine, flowers blooming and birds singing – dragons appeared in the sky spurting two streams of purified water (one cool and one warm), that gently cascaded down to bathe him.
