The meaning of the "Buddha Bathing"
Legend has it that at his birth nine heavenly dragons appeared and emitted the purest water to cleanse the newly born Prince. The baby Prince immediately to seven steps, at each of which a lotus flower sprang from beneath his feet. With one hand pointing towards the sky and the other towards the ground, HE said, "Heaven above and earth beneath, I am the Honoured One, the One who liberates all who suffer in the Three Realms." After the death of the Buddha, it became a tradition of bathe the statue of a little Buddha to commemorate His birth. Besides symbolising inner purification, it is believed that the act of bathing the Buddha can help with the purgation of our sins. In ancient Sri Lanka, it was also common to celebrate the Buddha's birthday with a colourful parade of His statue in the streets. Both of the traditions have been widely practised in China by Buddhist since the Tang dynasty (AD61B-906), and it is a recognised public holiday in Asia area.
How should we bathing the Buddha?

Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike are welcome to partake in this significant ritual which involves kneeling in front of the baby Buddha with sincerity and pouring water over the shoulder three times by saying:

“As I now bathe all Thus Come Ones(Buddha Tathagatas), may pure wisdom adorn the ocearn of meritorious virtues. May sentient beings with the five defilements depart from the dusts (of afflictions), and together realise the Tathagatas" pure Dharma Body.
