A Blessed Vesak Day To All

Tomorrow May 17th, here in most parts of South and South East Asia, we commemorate the birth and life of one of humanity's greatest spiritual teachers: the Buddha, who was born Siddhārtha Gautama in what is now Nepal half a millenium before Jesus Christ.

While I don't consider myself an actual follower of the Buddhist religion, I find that the lessons he revealed in what he calls "The Middle Way" and his teachings dispelling ignorance, finding a righteous yet practical way to life and to cope with its difficulties and spread compassion to the world made my own life more meaningful.

May all things find happiness!
