Buddhist Holiday: Visakah Puja

The celebration of life on earth. The miracle of existence and expressing gratitude for life. We give thanks by presenting the monks with gifts of food (noodles and milk). The food you donate is thought to be awaiting when you finally reach your final death so that you have food in the afterlife. (After lifetimes of rebirth you reach enlightenment and experience your final death).

 

Thai’s and Buddhists, feel free to correct me if I am wrong or if there is more to the holiday…
