The significance of Medin Full Moon day Commemorate The Buddha visiting his home and showed the path to enlightment to his father King Suddhodana and other relatives by preaching Dhamma.. After seven years of his Abhiniskramanaya Buddha visited his relatives in Kimbulwatapura or Sakya Desa, the kingdom of King Suddhodhana. His relatives too were anxious to see him. The Sakyans welcomed the Buddha and preceded him in a procession. Young Sakyans worshipped the Buddha but the elders who walked behind him did not worship him as they believed it was not proper for elders to worship the younger once.

Buddha with His divine eyes recognized what the Sakyans were contemplating on. In order to dispel the arrogance of Sakyans the Buddha performed the “Yama Maha Pelahera”, twin or the double miracle – the power said to have been possessed by the Buddha to create a stream of fire to discharge from one part of his body and a stream of water from the other at one and the same time. The power to issue such streams together from eyes and nostrils was the result of His having accomplished “Thejokasina” ad “Apokkasina”.  The Buddha performed the Twin miracle only when it was essential and this was the second occasion.. The king seeing this wonderful sight saluted him immediately, saying that it was his third salutation. Then all the other Sakyans paid him due respects.
