The history of this festival says that this festival is symbol of love which is a pure feeling for your beloved. Love is the biggest virtue in this world. We can win the other’s mind with love.
The legend says of a human cow herder named Niúláng and a fairy named Zhinü–the daughter of the goddess of heaven–who was in love and wed in secret. We can understand the love between them. We are talking about the Heaven which is the purest place where there is no vices at all. Everybody loves all, there is no partiality. Everybody have pure love with each soul.
When Zhinü’s mother exposed that her daughter had married a mortal man, she disallowed their love and demanded Zhinü return to heaven. When we talk about the Heaven, we can not compare with this hell. This is the time when hell is everywhere. There is no heaven, we see in this time now. But GOD says, if you follow the GOD’s teachings and become pure, you can be in heaven. So, be prepare for that and start study.
Niúláng struggled to find his wife in heaven, but the goddess created a river between them, known today as the Milky Way.
Touched by Niúláng’s heartbreak, thousands of magpies shaped a bridge over the river to unite the couple again, a scene reimagined in the Doodle artwork.
In turn, the goddess decided to let the star-crossed lovers to see once a year on this day.
Taiwan remember them today and celebrate, enjoying this day and spread love in the society. There is no anger, peacelessness. There is only love and love in the air. Where there is a love, peace and prosperity is there.
