Tomorrow (19-July-2016) is the Fullmoon day of Waso, when Buddha expounded the First
Sermon, namely the Dhamma Cakkappavattana Sutta commonly known as the
Great Discourse on the Wheel of Dhamma. Therefore, the Fullmoon day of Waso is regarded as the Dhammacakka Day in the memory of the day the Buddha preaches his First Sermon.
The Buddha attained Supreme Enlightenment on the night of the Fullmoon of Kason in the year 103 of the Great Era. Then He preached this Dhammacakka Sutta in the early evening on the Fullmoon day of the following Waso.
The introduction to the Sutta says the Blessed One preached the First Sermon to the group of five Bhikkhus while he was staying in the pleasance of the deer Sanctuary in the township of Benares.
Being the First Sermon ever delivered by the Blessed One, it is the most ancient and the most straight forward of His Teachings. Rare is the person, amongst the laity of this Buddhist country of the Union of Myanmar, who has not heard of this discourse. Numerous are those who have committed this Sutta to memory. There are, in almost every town and village, religious groups devoted to group recitation of the Sutta and listening to it. The Buddhist followers regard this Sutta with great esteem and veneration as it was the First Dispensation of the Blessed One.
