The Heart of Buddhism

By Linda Tancs

Tomorrow marks the full moon day of the third lunar month.  That means that in Buddhist-majority countries like Thailand they’ll be celebrating Makha Bucha Day.  Held in honor of Buddha, the event commemorates Buddha’s sharing of his enlightenment with a congregation of disciples.  The day ends with a closing ceremony where thousands of monks light candles, chant scripts in temple grounds and perform the ritual of wien thien (circling the temple three times) in major shrines.
