    Pattaya celebrates Asaka Buscha

    Pattaya celebrates Asaka Buscha.


    Sunday 29th July was Asaka Buscha Day here in Thailand which celebrates Buddha’s first sermon to his initial five disciples.
    Asaka Buscha also anticipates Kao Pansa, the three month period of Buddhist penitence and fasting also known as Buddhist Lent which this year started on Monday.

    We went to the Chaimongkon Temple in South Pattaya for the celebration which began early in the morning with offerings made to Monks known in Thai as “Tamboon”, this was followed in the evening with “vientienne” which requires worshippers to walk around the temple three times. Many hundreds of worshippers attended the event and they all made their way slowly around the main temple building in silent prayer and contemplation.
