An annual festival to do with spirits, planting rice and something about escorting the living home if I recall. It was fun even though it was very hot. Thankfully we didn’t have to wear anything like you see in the photo.
Here’s another one. A lot of work goes into making the masks which are all done by hand.
Little Novice KnickKnack.
That’s pretty spooky.
Novices KnickKnack and Kay.
Some sort of fertility dance perhaps.
Novice Don on the left with Ajahn Ratana (in the middle). Ajahn Ratana is a very nice Cambodian monk who works very hard for the school. I’m not sure how long he’ll stay as he plans to study for an M.A. in the future.
Novice Don who is Yom Yai’s right hand assistant and can usually be found being busy around the kitchen.
Spontaneous photography moment.
Novice Sunin at the back, a senior novice.
With Ajahn Ratana.
