Candle offerings to mark Asarnha Bucha Day and Buddhist Lent Day

July 2018
Mr Neoh Kean Boon, General Manager, led the hotel staff and management to bring donations of candles and other merit items in observance of Asarnha Bucha Day and Buddhist Lent Day to Djittabhawan Temple on Sukhumvit road.

Asarnha Bucha Day is when the Lord Buddha delivered his first sermon in the Deer Park in Benares, India and revealed the Four Noble Truths to five monks.

Buddhist Lent Day or in Thai “Khao Phansa” takes place on the day after the full moon of the eighth lunar month (July), the start of the three-month period during the rainy season when monks are required to remain in a particular place such as a monastery or temple grounds for meditation and study, where there was a need for candlelight as there was no electricity in the old days.
