All the best to you for the year of the pig!!! We joined the crowds today at the Nan Tien Buddhist Temple which is very close to where we live. It was a hot summer day, perfect weather for the New Year festivities and the many people who flocked to the temple to enjoy the day. Nan Tien is the biggest Buddhist temple in the southern hemisphere, and is a beautiful facility.
We arrived in time to enjoy the Lion Dance and Martial Arts demonstrations by the dancers.
It was a fun way to spend a few hours with the family, besides being interesting and educational. I have been fascinated with Buddhism for ages, so I plan to go back to the temple on a quieter day to investigate further.
