  1. It means we will expect more visitors on May 10, paying for their respects and asking for more blessings. It would be a lovely day to visit. We never know.what Buddha will give to his devotees 🙂

  2. This –>” *All are welcome. For non-Muslims only” caught my attention. Is the event for those who want to see more about your religion? It’s not clear. I wanted to know more about buddha and his life but also to meet local people during the 2 weeks that I will be visiting.
    Why an event for non-muslims only?
