Her Royal Highness Princess Soamsawali (โสมสวลี) yesterday presided over a merit making ceremony at Sunthorn Thammathan (สุนทรธรรมทาน) Temple, in Pomprab Satru Phai (ป้อมปราบศัตรูพ่าย) district as part of the Buddhist Lent this year, which begins tomorrow.

The ceremony has become a customary practice for Thais to take part in alms giving processions in which with food, candles and various items. The 3-month period of rain retreat starts from first day of the waning moon of the eighth lunar month to the full moon day of the 11th lunar month.

This particular Buddhist event is the auspicious time of worship. People vow to adhere even more strictly to the commandments, or to abstain from all vices such as drinking alcoholic beverages. It is also customary for young men attaining the age of 20 to go into monkhood during this season for the purpose of religious training.

The Sunthorn Thammathan Temple, formerly known as Wat Khae Nang Loeng (วัดแคนางเลิ้ง), has once welcomed their Majesties the King and the Queen during their visit to perform the royal placement of the main monastery’s roof in October 1975.
