The Busan Buddhism Association has extended the lantern festival to last a month long instead of canceling the event due to social distancing.

During the event, monks will hold daily relay prayers at 6 pm to overcome the pandemic crisis.

The Busan Buddhist Association will broadcast the relay prayer in real time on its official YouTube channel.
