A large boat carried by members of a temple held paper lanterns on small boats with the names of the deceased written on them.
People placed the small paper boats in the river. The candles lit inside the lanterns made the scene very dramatic.
Here I am, placing a boat in the water. After that, I said a blessing for the deceased.
