Jam Jar Lantern (Demo Video)
On Buddha Purnima Day, people generally gather and offer their prayers to Lord Buddha. There is a party feel to the whole occasion. Houses and streets are cleaned and decorated with Buddhist flags and flowers. Buddhists gather around the statue of Lord Buddha when it is dark. They walk around the statue with candles to light up the place.
Buddhists use light (candles, butter lamps, lanterns) to celebrate Buddha Purnima to recall that Buddha showed people how to become enlightened.
Here is a video that demonstrates how to make a beautiful lantern with used jam jar in three easy steps. This Buddha Purnima, let us make this beautiful ‘Jam Jar Lantern’ to illuminate our shrines.
Let the light of peace and good will shine in the world!
