About The Event
Above festival fall on the 10th month of Thai Lunar Calendar every year. Buddhists believe that during this period, spirits of our departed ancestors who are suffering in PRET realm will return to the human world seeking for merits from their living relatives. During this month, relatives are performing meritorious acts, chanting and transferring merits to their departed ancestors. According to the Buddha’s teaching, the duty of transferring merits to parents and other relatives falls on living members of the family. Thus Buddhists undertake to follow different religious functions to transfer merits to the departed so that they may be well and happy.
