Buddha Day, Full Moon Day of Kason celebrated across Myanmar

The Buddha’s Day, the Full Moon of the month of Kason fell on 18th May in 2019 and pagodas across Myanmar crowded with the people.

Buddhists across the country took part in the celebration of Budda’s Day, the Full Moon day of the month of Kason because the Buddha was born on the day of the Full Moon of the month of Kason, upon which He attained Enlightenment at the age of thirty-five and also upon which He entered Parinibbana (passed away) at the age of eighty.In commemoration of these three significant and holy events associated with the precious life of the Lord Buddha, Buddhists celebrate Buddha Day, the Full Moon of the month of Kason every year.
