2020 Maghapuja Day Ceremony

Maghapuja Day is a full moon day in the third lunar month. On this day, 1,250 monks who were personally ordained by Lord Buddha himself came from different places without previous appointment to pay homage to Lord Buddha at Veluwan Vihara in Rajgaha. All the monks were enlightened monks (Arahants). This meeting became a miracle. In the evening of that day, Lord Buddha gave the assembly the important sermon called "Ovadha Patimokha" saying the fundamental principles of his Teachings which is summarized into three points: to do good, to abstain from doing evil and to purify the mind. The schedule is as follows:
