They flicker but they don’t burn

Thursday May 3, 2007

THEY looked like lit candles from afar, flickering in the darkness. But these were not conventional candles.

To welcome the Buddha Year 2551 in a more unique fashion, 2,551 electronic candles were lighted at Bayan Baru’s Than Hsiang Temple’s car park during the temple’s ‘Merit and Wisdom Nite’ on Wesak Eve in Penang.

The electronic candles were plac-ed in tall plastic cups arranged together on the ground to form the number ‘2551’ and two Buddhist swastikas at the temple car park during the lamp-lighting ceremony.
