For centuries in Southeast Asian, the Water Festival has celebrated importance of water in aspects of life. Water has always represented prosperity, life and goodness to the Southeast Asian people.

Buddhist scripture explains that the Water Festival is held to thank the spirit of the water, to pray for evil spirits to go away, and to honor the Dragon King who dwells in the water. The Festival also asks the water spirit for forgivness for 'dirtying ' the water- for example by using it to irrgate soil.
