2014-05-16 ACC Lesotho Mothers Day celebration

On 11th May ACC Lesotho was filled with music and laughter as the kids, volunteers and over 300 others from the local community celebrated both Buddha’s Birthday and Mother’s Day. As a sign of gratitude, everyone participated in the Bathing the Buddha ritual which symbolises the cleansing of our heart and mind – an important aspect in Buddhist practices which encourage people to be mindful, carefree and to rid oneself of greed, malice and ignorance by simply doing good deeds, speaking good words, and having good intentions. Photos from the event can be found below.
