Kason itself is one of the most important celebrations in Myanmar which marks and celebrates the Buddha's core stage of life from birth, enlightenment from Nirwana to his death, which all took place on the same day according to calendar calculations exactly 2,500 years ago.
Kason Festival is celebrated in May hot in Myanmar. One important element of nature in this celebration is water that flows non-stop in the process of religious ceremonies. Almost in every major temple in Myanmar that can reach thousands, there will be a parade and lively music with participants will bring pots / jars made of clay. This pot will then be filled with running water and provided in each temple and people will flock towards the Bodhi tree planted in the temple grounds.
The Bodhi Tree is considered sacred because the Buddha himself received enlightenment from Nirvana on while meditating under a Bodhi tree. To respect this history and culture, water from the jug will be poured into the root of the Bodhi tree to keep it healthy and strong in the hot dry season. In addition, this celebration is of course complemented by music and an abundance of local dishes to add to the excitement of the atmosphere.
