    Oct 24Full Moon in October
    Abhidhamma Day
    The Festival of Lights



    The Full Moon Day of Thadingyut (October) is
    of special significance to the Buddhists, not because it
    is the end of the Rains Retreat (Vassa ) but because it
    highlights one of the most important events in the life
    of Gotama Buddha.

    According to Buddhist chronicles, the Tathagata
    or Buddha, the Enlightened One, went to the Tavatimsa
    Heaven to preach Abhidhamma (Higher Subtleties of
    the Dhamma) to His mother, who passed away seven
    days after His birth and was reborn in the Tusita Heaven
    as a Deva called Santussita.

    The Buddha propounded Abhidhamma for the
    first time there in the presence of Santussita and other
    Devas for 90 days. At the end of the Rains Retreat
    (Vassa) i.e. on the Full Moon Day of Thadingyut, the
    Tathagata descended to earth (to the human abode) at
    the city of Sankassa.

    Now Buddhists observe Abhidhamma Day annually
    in commemoration of the Buddha’s return from
    the abode of celestials to that of human beings. It is a
    significant religious occasion as the Abhidhamma is
    really the golden knowledge which will help one to discard
    wrong views and to acquire the right views for
    one’s total liberation from all miseries. Buddhists offer
    lights to the Buddha image and perform meritorious
    deeds on this day in accordance with the tradition which
    has been upheld since the life time of the Buddha.

    The Festival of Lights in the month of
    Thadingyut (October) may seem an occasion for
    rejoicing and merry-making but in essence, it is an
    auspicious occasion for spiritual delight and merit
    making.
