Buddhist Lent Day

Buddhist Lent Day is a public holiday in Thailand, and it is observed on the first day of the waning moon of the eighth lunar month, which is the day after Asalha Puja.

Buddhist Lent Day marks the start of the three-month period of Vassa when monks are required to remain in a particular monastery or temple grounds, usually from July to October. It coincides with the rainy season, and traditionally the monks are not allowed to stay overnight in other places. They will study, meditate or teach other young monks during this time.
