Khao padap din are packets of rice wrapped in banana leaves and put outdoor on the ground in order to feed ghosts. The text mentions a poor man who was faithful and gave a rice ball he had earned in the alms-bowl of a Buddhist monk and dedicated the merit to all his parents, relatives, cousins and teachers. The results of the merit supported them to escape from hells and go to heaven. When the poor man died he also went to heaven and gained heavenly properties.
