About The Event
Makha PujaDay takes place on the full moon day of the third Lunar month.
This Holy Day is observed to commemorate two important events in the life of Lord Buddha.
After the first Rains Retreat at Deer Park, Lord Buddha went to Rajagaha City.
There were 1250 Arahants (enlightened followers) returned from their mission without prior appointment to pay respect to the Lord Buddha. This assembly is called the Fourfold Assembly as a result from 4 special factors :
1. All 1250 monks were Arahants. 2. All of them had been ordained by the Buddha. 3. They assembled by themselves without prior call. 4. It was on the full moon day of Makha month.
