Happy Asalha Puja 2022: Messages, Posters, Top Quotes, Greetings, Images, To Celebrate Theravada Buddhist festival

Asalha Puja This is an important and very holy day for Buddhists. This religious festival day is celebrated on the full moon day in the 8th lunar month according to the old Indian calendar. It is meant to celebrate the first teachings of the Buddha. Earlier in 2014, it was celebrated on July 13, which is the 15th day of Shukla Paksha of eight lunar months. This year this day will be celebrated on Wednesday, July 13, 2022. Some of the traditions that modern Buddhist monks practice on Asalha Puja Day include reciting the Eight Precepts, giving sermons and major meditations, chanting in Sanskrit, and leading a candlelit procession around their temple three times.

According to dailyhunt.in, Asalha Puja begins 2,500 years ago before the Buddha began his time as a great teacher. Since Buddhist fasting begins in the 8th lunar month, this was the time when pious people called the next three months “Varnish Vapi”, as it was also the monsoon season. In the same year, Lord Buddha’s son Rahul was born and Lord Buddha accepted the life of a monk, renouncing all material pleasures. Both the birth of Rahul and the acceptance of Buddha as a monk by giving up worldly pleasures took place in this month.

The Buddha’s first sermon contained the essence of all his future lessons. A very common occurrence occurs when monks chant the discourse, which is called the Dharma Kakka Sutta or sitting in motion of the wheel of truth. There are four noble truths in the wheel: life means suffering or absence, the root of suffering is attachment or loneliness, the cessation of suffering is attainable, and the way to that cessation is through the Eightfold Path. Asalha Puja Day is also known as the day the Buddha chose Kondanna, his first disciple; Who is also the first Buddhist monk ordained by Buddha.
