[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My Dinh National Conventional Centre in Hanoi, Vietnam, glowed in the light of more than 10,000 candles in a special ceremony for world peace, prosperity and happiness for the United Nations Day of Vesak.

The candle lighting ceremony offered prayers for victims of Cyclone Nargis in Myanmar and the earthquake in China ís Sichuan province.

The candles formed the shape of the ancient swastika symbol that represents harmony, balance and well-being

Nice view - the pic would be better if the top and right side were cropped off.. Too much black at the top.
