Title

Consecration: The bowl used by the abbot of the temple Venerable Sao Khon, 1987

Description

The bowl used by the abbot of the temple Venerable Sao Khon. The bowl is filled with water which becomes blessed as the Venerable chants while melting wax into the water. The water is then sprayed over the heads of the laity assembled before him with a brush or, in some cases, a leafy twig, to convey merit on everyone present.
