Day Two
Day 2 (6:00 am- 5:00 pm) Early morning Heading to temple, take your shoes off at the entrance and walk into the main hall with Karen people who dress with their colorful traditional clothes, holding a basket filled with food and flowers. Make a merit Pay respect to the body of a venerated monk, then enter to the main hall for making a merit. Keep your eyes on and follow local people! The ritual begins with putting food into the bowls, followed by donating food to monks and finished by listening a sermon. Try to follow locals, because locals will orderly queue up from men to women, the oldest to the youngest person. Moreover, you will be amazed by their marital status from their clothes. It’s not only their belief or tradition but also the way to respect the Buddhist precepts of avoiding commit adultery. Happy meal, happy breakfast time!
