Parinirvana / Nehan-YE (Nirvana Day)

This is a Buddhist celebration. 

On the 8th or the 15th February, Sakyamuni Buddha passed into Pari-nirvana. To remind Buddhists of His noble teachings, paying tribute and follow the way that He has laid down, the Nehan-ye service is held. The followers of Jodo Shinshu revere Sakyamuni Buddha because He is the manifestation of Amida Buddha on this earth.
