Upcoming Emory Buddhist Events
===========================

Sunday, April 13th - 10am to 11am
Field Trip: Songkran Festival at Wat Buddha Bucha Temple
This Thai Buddhist festival goes on for several days during the middle of April. People clean their houses and wash their clothes and enjoy sprinkling perfumed water on the monks, novices and other people for at least two or three days. They gather around the riverbank, carrying fishes in jars to put into the water, for April is so hot in Thailand that the ponds dry out and the fish would die if not rescued. People go to the beach or river bank with jars or buckets of water and splash each other.
