As a prelude, a water blessing ceremony was held on Sunday by the Buddhist Fellowship.

Thailand's ambassador to Singapore, His Excellency Thakur Phanit, was there to grace the occasion.

 

The holy water was poured into the open sea to symbolise the message of harmony and growth flowing to other countries.

 

The organisers hope the event will also foster greater understanding between the various Buddhist traditions. - CNA
