Today is Binara Poya Day | Breaking News

Today (24) is Binara Poya Day, which marks the establishment of the Bhikkhuni Sasana (nuns order) during the time of Lord Buddha.

At a time where the women had a low status in Indian society, the move released them from the fetters that had bound them to home, hearth and child bearing, opening the doors to Nirvana for them.

Binara Poya falls during the Vassana (rainy) season, which starts on Esala Poya when Bhikkhus are confined to their abodes for three months.
