ពិធីដង្ហែមាឃបូជាប្រទក្សិណ ជុំវិញព្រះវិហារ Māgha Pūjā day marks the four auspicious occasions occurring at the Veḷuvana bamboo grove, near Rājagaha in northern India ten months after the enlightenment of the Buddha. On that occasion, as recorded in the commentary to the Mahāsamayasutta, DN-Comm 20) four marvellous events occurred: 1. 1,250 disciples came to see the Buddha that evening without being summoned. 2. All of them were Arahants, Enlightened Ones, and 3. All were ordained by the Buddha himself: Ehibhikkhus. 4. It was the full-moon day. On this occasion the Buddha gave those Arahants the principles of Buddhism, called “The ovadapatimokha”. Those principles are: To cease from all evil; To do what is good; To cleanse one’s mind. In Thailand, this teaching has been dubbed the “heart of Buddhism”.
