DETAILS
Magha Puja, sometimes spelled Makha Bucha , is one of the most important dates in the Buddhist calendar. Celebrated on the full moon night of the third lunar month, it is a day of veneration, marking the day nine months after Buddha’s enlightenment when 1,250 of his ordained followers spontaneously gathered to hear Him give a sermon, at which he established the basic tenants of the monastic order – the Sangha. The day is a public holiday in Thailand, as well as Laos and Cambodia.
