🙏A Special Welcome in Ban Phu📍

After having surprised us with a welcome parade, the people of Ban Phu organized a welcome ceremony known as the "Bai sri Soo kwan" ceremony. Through a dance performance around the Bai Sri (banana leaf decoration offering) the ancestral souls are invited to bless the guests with good spirit and mind after which the Moh Soot (eldest in the village) invite their blessings through prayers and is the first one to tie a holy string around the guest's hand and place an egg that has the good energy of the souls.🔰
I was so honored to be part of such an ancient ceremony. When the elders blessed me with prayers and good wishes, I couldn't help but get overwhelmed with it all. "Chan Kho Hai Khun Mi Khwam Suk Mak mak na ka" (I wish you much happiness)🧓👴👵🔰
