About Thadingyut Festival of Lights

The Myanmar lunar month of Waso, which normally falls in July, denotes the start of the three-month Vassa period, otherwise called Buddhist Lent or the Rains Retreat. Amid this time, priests are not permitted to move overnight from their religious communities, and subsequently, they devote these months to serious reflection and the investigation of the sacred text. Numerous laypeople likewise stick all the more intently to the Buddhist statutes by surrendering meat or liquor.

Weddings are not permitted amid this period, and music shows and other open exhibitions are disapproved of. As Myanmar, writer KhinMyo Chit writes in her book Flowers and Festivals Round the Myanmar Year, "It is a period of moderation, forbearance, and religious examination." During Thadingyut, pagodas and homes all through the nation are improved with electric lights, vivid paper lamps, candles, and even little earthenware saucers loaded with oil in which wicks are lit.

Real religious destinations, for example, Shwedagon Pagoda are stuffed with pioneers who light candles to pay reverence to the Buddha and pick up justify. Each light adds to the staggering display of thousands of little blazes consuming in the night. Out in the city, in the meantime, a few people light firecrackers or dispatch little hot-air inflatables, which quietly climb and float over the sky before wearing out.
