My experience in Weesak festival meditation

by Meryl

When I first joined the Weesak festival this 2012 I felt so great because I felt stillness in myself. The meditation took about an hour here in our City, Philippines. This experience opens my heart to really help other people because during meditation proper this is my first time that I have seen the Buddha sitting in front of me. It's just like he's watching over us during our meditation. I ask myself where am I but no one is answering me. That picture that I have seen just last for about 2-3 minutes. After which there's again blank in my mind. Then, minutes before the meditation is over I have seen a violet color and I was just wandering in a beautiful garden. It's just like I am in heaven, without distractions and other chaotic activities here on earth. And when the meditation is over I didn't tell anyone about my experiences because I myself can't understand what's all about the Buddha and everything because I'm just a basic practitioner of Pranic healing without know how about the colors of the chakras. But I can't resist telling my sister about what I have seen. But then again we both don't know what is that all about. Until I decided to tell my eldest sister who is a psychotherapy practitioner in Pranic healing. Then I have the answers to my questions and I realize that all I have seen are rare to other people. Because that Weesak festival is the festival celebrated my the humans for the Buddha. Weesak is the time that Buddha is coming down on earth to spread the blessings to us. I cried when I knew the explanation because I'm very very grateful that I experience all of it. As we all know all Buddha are just statues that we see and we worship if you are a Buddhist right? But we didn't know how powerful they are. Buddha are spiritual teachers from Indian subcontinent where Buddhism was founder. I hope these could inspire other people to do meditation for the betterment of the earth.
