Entering the Buddhist Lent (Wan Khao Phansa)

Jul 15, 2011 - Jul 17, 2011

Wan Khao Phansa is the first day of the 3 month long Buddhist “Lent” and the beginning of the rainy season. It commemorates delivery of the first sermon, the Dhammacakkappavattana­sutta (the Wheel of the Doctrine) and ordination of the first Buddhist Monk, which signified the establishment of Buddhism as a religion. Khao Pansa is the day following the Full Moon, the Inauguration of the Three-month Buddhist rainy season retreat. For the next three months, all Buddhist monks will stay in one temple, designated as their jum pansa or Rains retreat location. They must not stay overnight anywhere else. This is what villagers call “Desakala Khao Pansa” or “Observing the Time of the rainy season.”
