A Candle Cannot Burn Without Fire

Buddhists believe that the flame on the candles represents the light of Buddha’s teachings. Candles are placed in front of Buddhist shrines as a mark of respect. Buddha says “Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.” He also says, “Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life.”
