Thai Buddhist sect lights a million lanterns for festival


Thailand’s Dhammakaya Buddhist sect lights a million ground lanterns to celebrate Magha Buja Day – one of the most important Buddhist celebrations, which is held to commemorate the day when 1,250 enlightened Buddhist monks came to see the Buddha at night of the full moon of the third lunar month. The controversial sect is known for its wealth, unorthodox Buddhist teachings and alleged links to former Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra.
