Paying respects to my parents on my Birthday

Burmese tradition has been heavily influenced by Buddhist teachings. According to one of the Buddhist teachings, there are five revered ones. They are the Buddha, his law, his order of monks, parents and teachers. In order to show gratitude and also to seek for forgiveness, we pay respects to our parents by the act of kadaw ( by kneeling before our elders and paying obeisance with joined hands and bowing ) on our Birthday.
