Buddha Era 2556 Lotus Lantern Festival in Seoul

epa03225401 South Korean monks parade during the Buddha Era 2556 Lotus Lantern Festival in Seoul, South Korea, 19 May 2012. South Korean Buddhists celebrate Buddha's upcoming birthday on 28 May. The lighting of a lotus-shaped lantern in Buddhism traditionally symbolizes a display of religious devotion to perform good deeds and lighting up the dark parts of the world that are filled with agony. Throughout the Goryeo and Joseon Dynasties, this practice has developed and been preserved in many forms of public performances such as the lotus lantern service, a national-level Buddhist memorial service, and the lotus lantern parade.
