The Full Moon Day of Dabodwe (February)
(၁၃၇၆ ခုႏွစ္၊ တပို႔တြဲလျပည့္ ၁၅ ရက္၊)
The word Pali “Patimokkha” means keeping away
from suffering of the four nether worlds, Apaya.
The Buddhas with long life span gave this desana of
“Ovada Patimokkha” to the Sanghas till the end of
sasana. With short life span the Buddhas admonished
only Ovada Patimokkha within first 20 vassas (the
first Bhodhi). In the second Bhodhi, the Buddha
gave the order by “Powered Patimokkha”.
The Buddha said to Venerable Ananda that the rules
preached by all the ancient Buddhas were the same .
At the full moon day of the month, Dabodwe (February),
9th month after fully enlightenment the Gotama Buddha
admonished the desana of “Ovadapatimokkha” to the
Arahants as it was preceded by every ancient Buddha
at Veluvana monastery in Rajagaha.
