Full Moon of Kasong

Full Moon of Kasong, also known as Buddha Jayanti or Buddha Purnima, is a public holiday in Myanmar, and it falls on a full moon day in the month of Kasong, the second month in the Buddhist calendar.

Full Moon of Kasong commemorates the birth, enlightenment, and passing away of Gautama Buddha, the religious leader from Ancient India. He was the founder of the world religion of Buddhism.

Buddhists believe that if they perform good deeds on the Full Moon of Kasong, their merits will be multiplied many times. Merit is a beneficial and protective force that accumulates from good deeds and acts. Merits will bring good results and determine the next life's quality. As a result, merits are important practices to Buddhists.
