Life Atmospheric Phenomenon

Buddha ray, toward Dunnigan Hills Seeing crepuscular rays at sunset is unusual, but I can remember a few in my fifty-odd years. Seeing a single beam of light going straight up is one I’ve never seen before. Known as a buddha ray, it probably has engendered numerous UFO-calls today from northern California.

This month the birth, enlightenment, and death of the Buddha are celebrated. The theory goes that any merit gained during this lunar month is magnified. May our thoughts turn to generosity and to the light.
