Most temples hold ceremonial bathing of an image of baby Prince Siddhartha placed in perfumed water with flowers on Vesak day. The perfumed water is scooped with a ladle and poured over the statue. This symbolises the purification of one’s unwholesome deeds with wholesome deeds.

多数寺院都会举行将悉达多太子的圣像置于充满鲜花及香水的盆里,用勺子掬起净水淋在佛像上,为佛沐浴的仪式。 这象征以善行来净化我们的恶业。
