To mark the full moon day of Kason in the 1380 Myanmar Era, Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing and wife Daw Kyu Kyu Hla, along with the families of offices of the Commander-in-Chief (Army, Navy and Air Force), poured water on Bodhi trees at Lawkachantha Hsutaungpyae Pagoda in Zeyathiri Township, Nay Pyi Taw, yesterday.
First, the Senior General and his wife offered flowers, lamps and water to the pagoda.
During the ceremony, the Senior General and his wife watered the Bodhi trees, together with the Buddhist devotees. They then sprinkled scented water on the Buddha images. Buddda attained His Enlightenment under the Bodhi Tree in Gaya, India, more than 2,500 years ago on the same day. —Myanmar News Agency
