Asanha Bucha Day

Panyaden International School marks Asanha Bucha Day in Chiang Mai

Panyaden students and teachers commemorate Asanha Bucha Day, an important day in the Buddhist calendar. Later, the Grade 3 class offered food and the candle the whole school made earlier in the week to the local temple, Wat Ban Sala. Candles are traditionally offered to monks at this time for Khao Pansa, a time when monks retreat for three months during the rainy season for contemplation and study.
