Karma Purification

This ritual for purification of karma and ensuring longevity is specific for Lanna Buddhism. It involves the use of a shelter-like construction adorned with bananas, coconuts and candles, ceremonial threads and chanting. The current year of the Snake is considered especially unfavorable for people born in the year of the Pig, therefore, they were given a special attention. The ritual was hosted by Saai Mai Tieng Tam, a reputed clairvoyant, in her house in Lampang.
