Wesak Day 2011 in Amsterdam

It is always great when a community comes together for a spiritual event.

This is my first time attending the Wesak Day celebrations in Amsterdam. It is held by the same Buddhist Association which organised the annual event in London. Here are some snap shots of the event using my Blackberry.




The grand altar in the open space in Nieuwmarkt.



The Showering Of Baby Buddha.



Lion Dance amongst other performances

Gordon Liu in Amsterdam

Last but not least, it was also a bonus to see Gordon Liu at the event. He is a Hong Kong Kung Fu Legend and made it to the Hollywood screens in Kill Bill Vol 1 and Vol 2. He was here to judge a Kung Fu competition.
