Vesakha – Sri Lanka

On the full moon of May, Buddhists commemorate the birth, enlightenment and the passing away of Gautama Buddha. Simple offerings of flowers, candles and joss-sticks are brought to illuminated and decorated temples, where the celebration is an opportunity to reiterate their determination to lead noble lives, to develop their minds, to practise loving-kindness and to bring peace and harmony to humanity.

The Soul & Surf family took a trip down to Uthpalawanna Sri Vishnu Devalaya to celebrate Vesakha and take in the magic of this special day.

From uncrowded warm glassy waves to a relaxing stay the experience at Soul & Surf completed my trip. The crew running the show are absolute legends, accommodating in every way and have created an experience that I’m sure to relive in years to come. Thanks so much for the swell times!
