Krayasart which means food for the Sart Rite is prepared from rice, bean, sesame and sugar cooked into a sticky paste and then wrapped with a banana leaf. After making Krayasart people would take it to the temple to be offfered to the monks on Sart Day. At the temple, a raised-platform would be erected in a long line on the temple grounds and the monk’s alms-bowls would be placed on it. People would then put Krayasart in the alms-bowls till they were full of Krayasart. Then Krayasart would be transferred into a bamboo basket by the temple boys. At the same time, food and dessert would be separately offered to the monks at their lodging. At The end of the offering ceremony, people would perform a ceremony of pouring the water of dedication, in order to transfer merit to other beings, as people believe that if they did not offer Krayasart to monks, their dead relatives would have nothing to eat and thus they would be condemned as having no gratitude towards their benefactors.
