The Reasons of Bathing Buddha's Statue on Wesak Day

      When we bathe the Buddha’s body, of course, our Teacher, the Lord Buddha’s body does not have any stain of un-cleanliness or filth, however, by the act of bathing the Buddha’s body, our own misdeeds and obscurations of body, speech and mind will be purified. That is the reason why we bathe the Lord Buddha Shakyamun’s body. If we use the water that bathed the Buddha to wash our own bodies, we can, ourselves, receive the blessings of the Buddha. During the Wesak days, if you perform even a tiny positive virtue, you will have inconceivable benefits, and , likewise, any tiny non-virtuous misdeed could also becomes a great negative karma. It is very important that everyone should perform as much virtue as possible and avoid non-virtue as much as possible during Wesak period of 15 days.
