Pouring of water

Pouring of water when transfering of merits after a dana had been performed is a Buddhist custom which BMBMC had not put into practice, said Sayadaw U Vimala. According to the Buddhist scriptures, the act of pouring water had been mentioned, one notably when King Bimbisara had to transfer merits to his past relatives after the king had forgotten to do so when he had offered the a monastery to the Buddha.
