AsianDate, the popular international dating service for members seeking Asian matches, has announced online celebrations for Thailand’s Makha Bucha Day on February 11. The dating website has invited members to join them in the celebrations along with their favorite Thai matches. It’s all part of the dating activity that’s sure to make the dating service’s membership grow even faster.
Makha Bucha Day is an important religious festival for the people of Thailand. It is also celebrated in other Asian countries like Cambodia, Laos, and Sri Lanka where Buddhism has a significant influence. The day respects and honors the teachings of Buddha. Makha means third Lunar month and Bucha means honor in Thai.
Thais believe that on this day, many years ago Buddha delivered an important message in religious principles to his followers. The message was to never do any evil, focus only on goodness and to cleanse one’s mind. Makha Bucha Day is observed by paying respect to the Buddha.
Thais listen to the sermons and teachings of Lord Buddha and spend the day focusing on doing good deeds and helping others. They also take part in special events held across the country including candlelit processions held in many temples across Thailand. Buddhist monks circle temples in a clockwise route carrying a lighted candle, flowers, and lighted incense sticks. These three items symbolize the jewels of Buddha – the Dhamma or his teachings and Sangha or his monkhood.
Apart from the commoners, the King of Thailand and the Head of State also participate in celebrations. A special ceremony is held at the Royal Palace where select monks are invited for prayers and chanting of mantras. They also have breakfast with the royal family members.
AsianDate is encouraging all members to participate in Makha Bucha celebrations online. They can get in touch with their Thai friends and partners online to learn more about Makha Bucha and how it is celebrated in their part of the country.
AsianDate offers a number of exciting and innovative communication tools such as Live Chat, CamShare and Correspondence that members can use to stay in touch with their Thai matches. AsianDate’s app for Android and iOS is also a great way of communicating with matches at this time.
