Medin Full Poya Day is historical to all Buddhists as 4 very significant events happened on this day. It coincided also with the seventh year of Sakyamuni Siddhartha Gauthama Buddha’s attainment of the Enlightenment. On this day in response to the persuasion of Arahat Kaludai, Lord Buddha set out from Rajagahanuwara to Kapilavasthupura with 20,000 Bhikkhus which led to these four most significant evernts:
1. Attainment of Sothapanna by his father King Suddhodana and step mother Prajaphathie Gothami.
2. Princess Yasodara embracing Buddha, Dhamma and Sanga.
3. The ordination of his son Rahula
4. Assisting Prince Nanda to overcome his emotional attachment to his beautiful bride Janapadakalyani and ordaining him into Sangha by showing him visions of heavenly maidens and seared dead body of a female monkey.
