Festival in Myanmar

Major Ceremony of Buddhist


One important family celebration is ShinPyu or the novitiation ceremony. This is a main duty of parents.  This was done to sacrifice his human dress to the yellow robe.  The first step in novitiation is to put the boy under a monk to learn the rules of behavior as a novice. Than comes the auspicious play when he receives the robe. The boy’s head is shaved and a senior monk invests him with the robe. After the boy has recited the pali verses vowing to live according to the rules of the order. Before the shaving ceremony, the procession will be led by colourful decoration of the novice in brilliant coronation regalia of Myanmar kings on horse back or by shouldering.
Other participants including robes and offerings carriers belles of the native, accompanied by the musical troupe. And proceed to the monastery. A Shaving will be done & the food offered to the guests.
