Vesak, the blissful celebration

 “Vesak”, the blissful festivity
Sweep away all tumultuous anxiety
Sprinkling the drizzles of kindness
On the dried hearts of the helpless
Time to invoke peaceful tranquillity
Time to depart from futile hostility
Lanterns pandals lighted wicks
Immersed hearts in their bliss
Generosity banishes the stingy
To feed the poor and hungry
Beautiful flowers in multitude
Adorned with the beauty of gratitude
Echoes the unique sermons of the greatest teacher 
The greatest mentor the greatest healer
