Wesak festival is one of the festival held yearly by Buddhists in Malaysia. During the festivals, they are encouraged to partake of vegetarian food for the day. Devotees are enjoined to make a special effort to refrain from killing of any kind. Buddhists are reminded to live in harmony with people of other faiths and to respect the beliefs of other people as the Buddha had taught.
"The two main schools of Buddhism are Mahayana and Theravadha. The Mahayana tradition spreads from India to China, Korea, Japan, Tibet, Bhutan and Nepal while the Theravadha tradition spreads from India to the east, to countries such as Myammar, Thailand and Sri Lanka. Many also take this opportunity to visit the four holy places of Buddha namely Lumbini (Buddha’s birthplace), Bodh Gaya (site of Buddha’s enlightenment), Varanasi (site of Buddha’s first teaching) and Kushinagar (site of Buddha’s Parinirvana)."
