Issue Notice:
  • It is the season water in all ponds, lakes and creeks reduces to its lowest level. During the month of Kason (May) the length of the day is longer and the night is shorter.
  • People of Myanmar regard the month of Kason as Taurus season and the sign of the zodiac is a ball. The seasonal flower is Sagar and this festival is water pouring ceremony at the maha-Bodhi tree, the holy Banyan tree at the foot of which the Buddha attained Buddhahood or enlightenment.
  • As the month of kason is at the middle of the hot reason, the earth is dry and people pour water at the Maha-Bodhi tree to make sure it does not die of drought during the hot summer.
  • This has become an integral part of Myanmar culture and on every full-moon day of kason, the Buddhist people would march in a grand procession to the Bodhi tree or to the pagodas to pour scented water.
