The Fire Festival in Myanmar

Dscn2368s_low In Myanmar, the Buddhist Fire Festival is held at the end of rainy seasons. According to the Buddhist teachings, people and the materials are prohibited from moving from one place to another during the rainy seasons. The best practice for moving is to build a new house during the rainy seasons, and to invite monks to the new house to bring blessings.

Fortunately, shelter-kits are expected to be built by the Fire Festival. Villagers say, “We have received the shelter-kits in just the right season.” Since JEN is putting their utmost effort in providing aid with respect to the local cultures, JEN was happy to discover this unexpected coincidence.Dscn2371s_low
