Lantern festival of Thailand

Makha Bucha commemorates the full moon day, which falls on the third lunar month of the year.Though sources differ slightly, it is generally believed the festival originates from the first sermon given by Lord Buddha, nine months after his Enlightenment, when 1,250 monk disciples appeared spontaneously to hear him speak. This beautiful image shows thousands of Thai Buddhist monks gathering to carry lanterns and venerate a statue of Buddha to mark one of the holiest days of the religious calendar.The Lantern Festival celebrated in many Buddhist countries, aims to promote reconciliation, peace, and forgiveness.
