laguna phuketBuddhist Lent is a period of three months during the rainy season when monks remain within the wat (temple) rather than making their daily journey into the community to receive food offerings so as to not trample on rice paddies. During this time, community members make traditional offerings in form of lent candles to the temples because it symbolizes spiritual illumination.
