We were in Arizona all of last week
and didn’t get back till late on Saturday, May 2, 2015.
So, unlike last year, when Vesak was mid-month,
I didn’t get a chance to do much Vesak-related coverage this year.
Plus, I was heads down most of April trying to get my
latest book published before we left for Arizona.
And I did manage to get it done on April 22nd.
But, there was a lot from last year and I am glad to see
that a lot of people are finding them this year.
As I suspected there was NO Google Doodle for Vesak.
Google tends to stay away from religious events — by and large
(though there are, of course, exceptions).
But, never mind. This story caught my eye.
This is even better.
