Trang Vegetarian Festival in Thailand

October 7, 2010 - October 16, 2010

This vegetarian festival is a ritual to propitiate Lord Siva and another 9 gods as well as all holy Buddhist souls. Mediums would manifest themselves by walking on fire or piercing their bodies for the salvation of humans. Vegetarian food is eaten to cleanse the body and mind. Other activities include letting off fireworks, dragon dances, and sales of vegetarian food at low prices.
