All corrections and responses to student/ teacher questions must be checked by your teacher
is it possible to attain complete peace?
Buddhists say that it's not possible to describe nirvana, just as you can't really answer those questions.

there is a buddhist story about a fish and turtle who were friends. The first asked the turtle what it was like to live on land. the turtle tried, but the fish couldnt imagine air or trees or anything else.

Buddhists say nirvana is like this. it is not life, and it's not death either.

Water is a really important part of this Songkran. Boat rides are held, and water streets take place all over the streets! They will even free caged birds, and save fish caught in small rivers that are about to dry up. Songkran is a time where Buddhists remember the Buddhas teachings on being kind to all living things.
We're going to have our own Songkran fun! We'll make our own boats, and we will write down our resolutions on them. Think carefully about the things you'd like to change in your own lives.
