Buddha Day in South Korea

When I posted recently that we had been celebrating the Buddha’s birthday as part of our Wesak event here in the West Wight I also mentioned that it was not the only date that the Buddha’s birth was celebrated.

Today South Korea commemorates Buddha Day preceded earlier in the month by the Lotus Lantern Festival to celebrate Buddha’s coming into the world.
