Early Cheng Beng prayers for my late wife   Leave a comment

I held an early Cheng Beng or Qing Ming Prayers for my late wife this morning at the niche at Wat Chaiyamanggalaram Buddhist Temple. As Buddhist, one did not hold strongly to the Chinese Lunar dates and I was right as there were also a few groups of fellow Buddhists offering prayers earlier than me on this morning. I offered her favourite chicken rice with her favourite breast meat and her sugarless local coffee or kopi-o. However, I burnt some joss papers just in case she “needed” this. It had been 27-plus months of her untimely demise.
