Candles in Wat Phanan Choeng, Thailand
While there, I witnessed the ritual of merit transfer. Men standing up on idol of Buddha were wrapping it with saffron robes; there was one man at the shoulder too. The robe was then used to cover the devotees and worshipers sitting down below. One of the priests there was chanting hymns and prayers. After the completion of the ritual, the robes were pulled away gently, folded and kept away for the next session.
