Smiling with happy anticipation, a little boy lights a candle in preparation for Wian tian (candle circle) performed before the full moon rituals. The child is a novice Buddhist monk. In Thailand, Buddha is honored on the day of the full moon in the sixth lunar month, usually in May. Visakha bucha day commemorates the master's birth, enlightenment and death, and dates from the Sukothai Empire that reigned in Thailand from the 13th to the 15th century.
