May 5. Day 125. The right way of looking at things
a) actually lived by these ideals and
b) took the time to understand more about other creeds.
Today Buddhism was on display at the Buddha Birthday Festival at South Bank.
It's every much an East meets West annual festival where medication, harmony, and peace with nature and your surrounds were being shared through everything from a baby blessing and interfaith service to food and fireworks.
Wandering through the crowds were the mascots encouraging the crowds to: Say good words, Take good actions, Think good Thoughts. Hard to argue with that. Large numbers of families were enjoying all the festival hard to offer from kids workshops and games to a fun rides and crafts. It was an excellent way of enjoying a sunny Sunday afternoon whether on the ground (my preferred option) or from the Bungee trampoline (as favoured by five-year-old Sophia). Either way it was a great opportunity to examine a different culture from another angle
