Foreign to the cultural and religious holidays in Singapore? Here’s a crash course on Vesak Day.
Vesak Day is one of the most important, holiest days celebrated by Buddhists, as it marks the birth, enlightenment (Nirvana), and death (Parinirvana) of the Gautama Buddha.
In Singapore, it’s celebrated on the 15th day of the fourth month of the Chinese Lunar Calendar. This year, it falls on 7 May 2020. Check out the gallery below to see how you can join in, even during the current circuit breaker.
