That Luang Festival

During November, scheduled to coincide with the full moon, was the That Luang festival. Some of the volunteers attended a large alms giving at That Luang temple as a part of this. At 5am we gathered alongside many many Lao people to make merit and offer food for the hundred or so monks who processed through. It was a very beautiful and moving event. Many of our students took part in the procession. It was wonderful to congregate there and share in this event.
