Sri Lanka is all lit up to mark Vesak, commemorated by Buddhists all over the world due to the important events that took place in the life of Lord Buddha on this day. First is the birth of Siddhartha Gautama; the second event is Siddhartha Gautama’s supreme attainment as the Buddha, the Enlightened One; and the third event is Lord Buddha’s Parinibbana over 2,600 years ago – Pix by Shehan Gunasekara
