Boun Khao Phansa

July 5

Early in the morning of the first day of Boun Khao Phansa (Buddhist Lent), local people gather food – rice, bananas and necessities such as soap and toothpaste, and then they take the donations to the temples where they listen to Buddhist teachings and receive blessings.

In the evening, monks and their novices carry flowers and candles around the central temple three times. It can be a very calming and peaceful experience to join the Lao people in temples on the first day of Boun Khao Phansa.
