Ghosts of Burma

Restless Souls of the Irrawaddy Delta
<-Please click pic.
~Burmese Buddhists traditionally hold two religious ceremonies—Yat Lae Hsun and Thet Pyauk Hsun—to ensure the release of the souls of deceased family members.
Mass ceremonies were held for the thousands who died in Cyclone Nargis
—yet villagers in many part of the devastated delta claim seeing the restless ghosts of cyclone victims.
If you found a friend in God
please ask them for direction
to the places they left the restless souls
to drown in their own damn'nation.
