Candle Festival
The commencement of Phansa, or the Buddhist Rains Retreat, (known in Thai as Khao Phansa) is observed in the northeastern city of Ubon Ratchathani with this lovely festival that displays artistic skills as well as piety. Beautifully carved beeswax candles, some of them several metres tall, are exhibited in colourful parades before being presented to local temples


Asalha Puja
The full-moon of the eight lunar months commemorates the Buddhaus first sermon to his first five disciples after attaining Enlightenment more than 2,530 years ago. Evening candlelit processions are staged in all Thai Buddhist temples.
Local people celebrate commencement of the traditional Thai New Year, customarily a time for paying respect to one's elders, by offering food to ancestral spirits. Festivities include a colorful procession, ceremonial food offerings, a beauty contest, culinary demonstrations, sports competitions, and musical and cultural performances.


Khao Phansa
This day marks commencement of the annual three-month Rains Retreat when Buddhist monks customarily stay inside their monasteries to study and meditate. Phansa is the most auspicious time for Buddhist ordinations since it comprises a period of renewed a spiritual vigour.
