Daibutsu-den (the Temple of the Great Buddha) at the Lantern Festival: Todai-ji (Nara)

People were inspiredly gathering around the knee of the Great Buddha, who was shining radiantly to guide all living things to the path of enlightenment.

In the temple of the Great Buddha, monks were beautifully chanting the Flower Garland Sutra to fulfill the cherished wishes of living persons and to pray for the souls of the departed.
