It's a day when Buddhists reaffirm this vow to take the path towards enlightenment. It's a long long path, but we are slowly walking towards it, learning something more with each baby step that we are talking.
May the Triple Gem be with you always, Happy Wesak Day.

A Prayer of Compassion
May i become at all times, both now and forever,
A protector for those without protection,
A guide for those who have lost their way,
A ship for those whit oceans to cross,
A bridge for those with rivers to cross,
A sanctuary for those in danger,
A lamp for those without light,
A place of refuge for those who lack shelter,
And a servant for all in need
~His Holiness the Dalai Lama~
