Thousands make merit
on Makha Bucha Day
February 9 this year was an important day for all Buddhists, as it was the date
on which Makha Bucha Day (Buddhist All Saints Day) fell. This important occasion
for Buddhists marks the first sermon of the Lord Buddha to 1250 monks.
In Pattaya, thousands of devout Buddhists turned out at local temples to conduct
ceremonies that have been performed throughout Buddhist history, and make merit
for themselves and their families.
The morning ceremonies were filled with people presenting offerings to the
monks, performing “tak baht” and listening to monks preach the Dharma, or
teachings, of the Buddha.
