អាសាឍ បូជា និង ចូលព្រះវស្សា​ Āsaḷha Pūjā and enter the Rains (Dhamma-Day)

Have questions or resources regarding Khmer Culture? This forum is all about the Kingdom of Cambodia's culture. Khmer language, Cambodian weddings, French influence, Cambodian architecture, Cambodian politics, Khmer customs, etc? This is the place. Living in Cambodia can cause you to experience a whole new level of culture shock, so feel free to talk about all things related to the Khmer people, and their traditions. And if you want something in Khmer script translated into English, you will probably find what you need.

អាសាឍ បូជា និង ចូលព្រះវស្សា​ Āsaḷha Pūjā and enter the Rains (Dhamma-Day)

Post by Samana Johann »

May all lead a blessed day by observing the Uposatha-Sila on today's Āsaḷha Pūjā, full moon in the month Āsaḷha, which reminds on the occasion the Sublime Buddha's first discourse and founding of the Noble Sangha. Following this day the monks enter the rains for 3 (4) month, called Vassa (Pali for rains, the customary lockdown in raining season), restricting traveling around, out of compassion.

Devoted lay people would visit the monks and give support for this annually lockdown.May all, by following traditional ways, gain the blessings of it traceable and quick, so that conviction in the Gems increases to fulfillment.

(the origin story also in Khmer: First sermon: បញ្ចវគ្គិយកថា)
