Hand Feeding Catfish

There is a Thai Buddhist tradition to feed fish at the rivers near their Temples. In Buddhism, the fish represents fertility and plenitude, so the people like to feed the fish as a way merit-making.  There is a Thai saying which says that “if you do good you will receive good, if you do evil you will receive evil.” Put very simply, most Thais have a general belief in karma and reincarnation and therefore respect and honor all life (hoping to get good back in the next life). The lady in this video was actually hand feeding very large catfish bread.
