Celebrating 2024 Makha Bucha at STOU

On 22 February 2024, Sukhothai Thammathirat Open University (STOU) held an event to celebrate Makha Bucha Day at the Rajamangalapisek Education Park of STOU headquarters in Nonthaburi.

Asst. Prof. Dr. Phanompatt Smitananda, Acting President of STOU, presided over the ceremony hosted by the Office of Continuing Education. The ceremony included alms-giving, Buddhist sermon listening and a candlelight procession at Ho Phra Phut Ming Mongkhon Dhammasathan.

Makha Bucha Day is considered a significant Buddhist occasion in Thailand. Makha Bucha refers to the full moon of the third lunar month. This year Makha Bucha falls on 24 February 2024, which is a public holiday nationwide. So, the university held the event beforehand to allow administrators, faculty members, and staff to have the opportunity to perform the ceremony together.
