First begins with the monks chanting harmoniously as they wish you good luck, safe travel, and a long life. It is accompanied by a light sprinkling of water. The second is a longer ritual which involves vessels of blessed water being poured over your head while the monks chant. For this ritual, you will be provided with a sarong/ kromar to change into so that your clothing remains dry.

At the end of the blessing, your wrist is adorned with red string bracelets that signify the blessing performed.
