    Who the big fat bafoon with all the garlands unter an umbrella? I thought the reason for the festival was to honor Lord Buddha and his simple way of life. I think these guys have a lot to learn about Buddhism and the teaching of the Master.

    Spectacular and glamorous no doubt. But so far away from the modesty of Buddhist teachings!
