Buddhist Lent

9th July




....................

This festival is celebrated in the month of July – it shows the concern of the Lord Buddha for the environment. It is a very significant religious ceremony in all Buddhist countries.

The Lord Buddha assigned to all of his disciples to stay in their monasteries during the rainy season because they might accidentally step on young plants and insects.

During this season young men become monks for a short period of time. It is a special time for self-reflection and doing charitable works
