It was a beautiful day today (about 24 degrees Celsius, unnaturally warm for the tale end of winter) so I took a train to Circular Quay and later a ferry to Manly Beach.
There was a beautiful display from the Korean Buddhists of paper lights and amazing paper sculptures as well as stalls teaching how to make the lights, and explaining the various facets of Buddhism.
The lights were beautiful and get switched on after 5.30pm. They must look wonderful. They are made of “hanji”, mulberry bark, as are all the sculptures. Here are some photos I took of them.
Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
