Happy Vesak Day 2021!

Vesak, also called Buddha Purnima is celebrated at the time of the first full moon of the lunar month of Vesakha.

Buddhists all over celebrate Buddha’s birthday and for some, this auspicious day marks his enlightenment (when he discovered life’s meaning).

In many parts of the world, a special ritual called ‘Bathing the Buddha’ is observed where devotees pour water on the statue of the Buddha, symbolising:
🌺Respect for the Buddha and his teachings
🌺A reminder to purify our minds
🌺Celebration for new beginnings

Today, a cosmic treat known as the ‘Super Flower Blood Moon’ eclipse, a burning red Super Moon or Blood Moon as well as a total Lunar Eclipse will be visible in Singapore.

The ‘flower’ refers to the time of year when spring flowers are in abundance and the ‘blood’ refers to the coppery red hue the moon takes during the eclipse.

Dr Abel Yang (National University of Singapore):
“This phenomenon is special because the eclipse coincides with the Moon at its closest approach to Earth, known as a supermoon. The Moon will appear slightly larger than usual.”

Stargazing Singapore:
“From Singapore, the Total Lunar Eclipse aka “Blood Moon” is visible at low horizon and it can be viewed from anywhere in Singapore with an unblocked view of the low East South Eastern horizon onwards.
Moon Rise @ 7.04pm (Not Visible, too low at horizon)
Full Eclipse Begins – 7.11pm (Visible, low at horizon)
Maximum Eclipse – 7.18pm (Visible, low at horizon)
Full Eclipse Ends – 7.25pm (Visible, low at horizon)
Partial Eclipse Ends – 8.52pm (Visible)
Penumbral Eclipse Ends (Visible)
Totality – 14mins

This event is highly dependable on the weather and cloud conditions that evening.
The lunar eclipse is observable via naked eye. No special equipment is necessary to view this event.”

Happy Vesak Day and happy moon spotting. Wishing everyone peace, harmony and eternal happiness.
