loving-kindness to all souls that were still trapped in the place so they could move forward to their next

Wongsakon felt the desperate and saddest energy current surrounded the area. After talking to the

Huange He (Yellow River). It was one of the deadliest floods that killed over three million people.
Through sudden death, large number of souls had been trapped there. With compassion, Master
Acharavadee and her students prayed and shared loving-kindness to those souls for them to be freed
from such entrapment and to find their way to the new realm.
