Wesak Day is observed by devotees to celebrate Buddha's Birthday enlightenment and achievement of Nirvana. From very early in the morning devotees flock to temples to meditate as well as participate in candle-lit processions. As a sign of benevolence, doves are set free and other charitable acts are also performed by devotees such as providing free meals. Monks usually gather to chant sacred sutras all day long.
