Asarnha Bucha Day

July 15th
Here at Kamalaya we've just celebrated Asarnha Bucha day paying respects to the local monks. "Asarnha Bucha" means paying homage and worshiping on the day identified according to the lunar calendar during the eighth month. In the Pali language, "Asanha' is the name of the eighth month. In Thailand, Asarnha Bucha Day (Asanha Puja Day) is one of the government holidays or the public holiday. This day is one of the most sacred in Buddhism. It is a Buddhist festival which typically takes place in July, on the fifteenth day of the waxing moon of the eighth lunar month. It commemorates the day on which Lord Buddha delivered his first sermon called "the Dhammachakapavattana Sutta" to his first five chief disciples at the Deer Park in Benares more than two thousand five hundred years ago. In this holy day, Buddhists all over the country observe the day by presenting offerings to the monks, listening to the sermons, and performing ritual prayers. Many guests came to take part in the ceremonies that took place in the Yantra Hall on this auspicious day.
