 SUNDAY  17 Jul 2016--10

 Asalha Puja, also known as Dharma Day, is one of  Buddhism’s most important holy days, celebrating  Buddha’s first sermon in which he set out to his five former associates the doctrine that had come to him following his enlightenment.
 This first pivotal sermon, often referred to as “setting into motion the wheel of dharma,” is the teaching which is encapsulated for Buddhists in the four noble truths: there is suffering (dukkha); suffering is caused by craving (tanha);
 there is a state (nirvana) beyond suffering and craving; and finally, the way to nirvana is via the eightfold path. All the various schools and traditions of Buddhism revolve around the central doctrine of the four noble truths.

This first sermon is not only the first structured discourse given by the Buddha after his enlightenment, it also contains the essence of all his subsequent teaching. At the end of the talk, one of the five participants recounted his
 understanding of what had been said and asked to be received as a disciple, a request the Buddha granted, thus establishing the first order of monks.

The day following Asahna Bucha is known as Khao Phansa or 'Buddhist Lent'. It marks the beginning of the three-month ‘Phansa’ period, during which all monks should stay in their temples and not travel.

The day will be observed by members donating offerings to the monks/Temple and listening to sermons. The day is known in Thailand as the first day of the rain retreats :Thai: พรรษา vassa.

* In Buddhism, Puja are expressions of "honor, worship and devotional attention."  Acts of Puja include bowing, making offerings and chanting
