Visakha Puja comes once a year, usually  in May  or  June.  It is performed to honor the birth, Enlightenment, and  passing away of Gautama Buddha.  (The UN  General Assembly, acknowledging  the hope expressed by the International Buddhist Conference held in Sri Lanka in November, 1998, urged that the day of Vesak, the day of the full moon in the month of May or June each year, be internationally recognized, in particular at United Nations Headquarters and other United Nations offices.)

          Visakha Puja literally means “worshipping on the full moon of the 6th lunar month.”  Wat Thai Washington, D.C., provides the opportunity for you  to  come  and  join  the ceremony as a part of the annual celebration for the cultivation of meritorious deeds.
