All Day


An important day for particularly novices and monks in Myanmar is the annual celebration of the Full Moon Day of Waso. Religious rites solidify the strong affection, the Burmese have with Buddhism and this is translated in making offers.

Waso robes play a very important role during this day where highly-respected monks receive new robes (Waso) during the upcoming Lent. It is very common to see many families bringing their children to the monastery to get ordained into monkhood – a tradition that continues to put the family in very high regard.
