The Myanmar New Year falls on the second week of April.The New Year is ushered in by three days of Water Festival. The true spirit of the water festival is to have nice clean fun with dear friends sprinkling scented water on one another.
With the sound of the "Ohzie"drums,cymbals and flute in the air,every task is a joy to do. Perhaps,this kind of spirit is not so evident in the heart of cities like Yangon,where there is rough play with water hoses.
Most of the finer aspects of the festival is to be seen in small towns and villages. According to folklore,Thagyamin, king of the celestials,will be on a visit to the human abode for three days.
Thagyamin will be in the human abode to see that people live and practise the Buddha's way.It is by way of helping and guiding humans that he comes down to bring in the new year and remind people of their religious and spiritual duties.
New Year is the time for people to cleanse themselves of the defilements they might have collected during the year and look forward to a better life.
