About End of Buddhist Lent
The month of October by Buddhists is marked by festivals of faith held to celebrate the end of Buddhist Lent. This is known as Awk Pansa and Tawd Gathin. The final day of the Buddhist Lent period falls on the full-moon day of the eleventh lunar moon. These ceremonies follow the three-month rainy season and are rooted in the country's agricultural tradition. Awk Pansa means "leaving the period of rain". It normally falls on around early October till early November. According to Buddhist belief, the day commemorates the end of Lord Buddha's retreat to heaven in the wet season, during which he met with his mother, who died when he was at the age of 7 years and there he preached her. Upon his return to Earth, his followers presented Lord Buddha and his disciples with gifts and food. This event is celebrated today by the presentation of food and other gifts to the nation's monks as they emerge from their rainy season retreat in temples across the land. This is a public holiday in Thailand. Thai Buddhists mark the event by visiting the wat and making merit.
