End of Buddhist Lent day Festival

End of Buddhis lent day festival


On October 12, 2011 is  a end day of buddhist lent in Thailand. The festival was the really great religious ceremony for their spirit for merit making.

The story of ending buddhist lent day from the buddha's Charaka(story or tale) is during the raining season all the people will grow up their rice fields covering the whole area in India. The buddhist monks on that time had travelled trough everywhere then passing rice and farm fields ,they destroyed everything down . All villagers complained to buddha what have happened to the whole rice fields because of the monks and novices.

The lord buddha had setted one rule, in raining season all monks and their followers should stay in one place for the whole three months in raining season.

This is the act to rule for the buddhist monks, when the monks stay in one place ,it made the good time for all buddhist to make merit in temple till the present time as we can see the end day of buddhist lent festival in Thailand.

End of Buddhist lent festival can be see in the whole countries at the same time for buddhist people.
