Brahman astrologers calculate which day would be auspicious to start a business. Buddhist monks are invited to perform the ceremony of blessing. On the morning of the appointed day, a number of monks, arrive. They circle a thread around the whole area to be blessed, then carry out the ceremony with chanting, finishing by sprinkling special water on the participants. There then follows a feast for the monks that confers merit on the host after which the people eat.
