Barge Merit Making

Barge Staff welcomed monks from a local temple to the barge to make merit following the Barge's time in dry dock where it had undergone repairs.

Staff reflected as the monks chanted while holding onto a white thread that had been trailed around the barge. After this, staff offered lunch to the monks and then the barge was blessed with water before the monks returned to more normal duties on dry land.
