Prabarana Purnima'2018

The festival, also known as Ashwini Purnima, marks the conclusion of the three-month-long seclusion of monks in monasteries for self-edification and atonement.


The release of sky lanterns commemorates an event in the life of Buddha, when he once clipped some strands of hair from his head and said that if he were qualified to attain supreme wisdom and enlightenment, the hair would go up instead of falling down. The strands of hair eventually went up.
