Water festival held before the Myanmar New Year



The word Thingyan is a Sanskrit term, called 'Thingyan'. It is a term that comes from Sanskrit. The Buddha Thingyan means "conversion". During the year, the end of the Myanmar year ends and the year in Tagu is the year of the new year. It means "New Year's Eve". The heat of summer is cooled by Thingyan water. Cleanses from the old years with fresh, cleansed water in Thingyan.

So when you look for a story, you can find two kinds of stories. One comes from Hinduism and the other comes from the sun and the earth.

History of Hinduism

The dispute between Shishak and Brahman (Arsi) was won, and he became the head of Brahma. The brahmana is so powerful that if he casts his head into the sea, the water will be dried up and the fire destroyed. If they were thrown into the air, all beings would be burned, so he did not want to leave anywhere, but only in his hands.

Later, the powerful deities were assigned, and one year the king ordered that the head be kept. The Brahmin calculates the exact time when the head will be shifted from one hand to the other, and it is said that the transitional period is a monk. It is also considered a full year.

During that time, the pagodas often worked in the country for the purpose of promoting goodwill and spreading the Buddhist religion. The record is also recorded. Write the good guys on the gold platter and Bad notes are written on the dog's skin.(The death of the body, the purification of the five senses, the virtue and the hell and the dhamma. Therefore, it is of no consequence at all, since it is not important at all.)

In addition, even in the time of the gods, there are examples of people who have been in the dark since midnight, if they want to hear the word. Happy Birthday! Knowledge The bhikkhus are the seams mentioned at night. This is because the gods can't bear the smell of old food in people's hearts. Therefore, in Thingyan, it is impossible to say that Sakka was descended from people.

However, according to the above story, though, the ceremony of watering the river is not involved in watering. Only in later times can we drink water in a relaxed and welcoming way. They play by watering. Therefore, in the long run, Thingyan, Thingyan and Thingyan The story of Sakura and Shukla becomes one with the story. Thus, in the daytime, the Sakyans descend into the human race; One day, the man returned from human life. The story goes on and on.

History of the sun and the earth

The story is based on the Buddhist scriptures. Related to astrology If you look at the solar system from the beginning of the season, it is a matter of time. When the time of the monsoon comes, according to the Dhamma Sutra, 365 days, 6 hours 12 min, It is said that 37 seconds after entering the Sun, the Sun enters the zodiac, the zodiac is zero and the New Year is over.

Defined as Thingyan However, when the actual New Year goes, 4 hours It takes 4 minutes and 40 seconds. It is a month in the month of Tagu for the Myanmar calendar using the 12-month calendar.

Naturally, the term "Tagu" originates from Tudor, which was used by the ancient Burmese scholars for the purpose of transferring the Sun from Saturn to Saturn. Another idea is that the ton or row is the plow and the harvester is harvesting. Therefore, it also means "the month of harvesting".

According to Buddhist scriptures, it was during this time that the princes of Devadhaha, the mother-in-law's family, drank water. (Deva means "prince," meaning "prince," meaning "prince"). In this episode, the story goes on. It is only by meditating with Buddhists and astrologers.
