phuket vegetarian festival

Every October in Phuket, Thailand they hold "the vegetarian festival" where Devotees manifest supernatural powers and perform self-tortures in order to shift evil from individuals onto themselves, and to bring the community good luck.
Participants in the fest keep to a strict vegetarian diet for a varying number of days, usually no less than three. This they do to make themselves strong in mind and body; they refrain from all vice, eating animal flesh, dairy and killing animals. The festival thus promotes good hygiene, brightness and inner peace.

go vegan, its good for you and the animals.
