The Laba Festival celebrates the enlightenment day of the Buddha. Before the Buddha became enlightened, he spent six years practising severe asceticism. After becoming starved and weakened, he was said to have accepted milk and rice pudding from a village girl. Sakyamuni was thus able to continue his journey and became a Buddha on the 8th day of the 12th lunar month. To commemorate this, people eat porridge and make offerings to the Buddha on this day.
