A Message from the BSWA President - Passing of the King of Thailand Featured
Dear Buddhist Friends
I write to you from San Kamphaeng Thailand where I am currently on business until the 24 October.
Yesterday the much loved King Bhumibol Adulyadej passed away in the afternoon in Bangkok. The King was the most respected figure in Thai Society for many decades and seen as a force of good over his 70 year reign.
As the BSWA stems from the Thai Forest Tradition and our Abbot Ajahn Brahamvamso received a life peerage from King Bhumibol, the BSWA pays respects to the King of Thailand's passing and we give our condolences to the Thai members of our community.
To commemorate the King's death;
1. The Sangha will be offering chanting at Bodhinyana Monastery every evening at 7pm for a week.
2. Ajahn Brahm will conduct a ceremony at Dhammaloka Saturday 15 October from 5.30-6.30 pm. ( UPDATE - the date and venue has changed and will be advised as soon as the arrangements have been finalised by the Thai Group. The BSWA web site will be updated with the changes )
3. The BSWA shall also fly the flags at half mast over the weekend.
To properly respect the King and due to our parking restrictions at Dhammaloka I encourage members of the the Thai Community to attend the monastery night time ceremonies rather than Dhammaloka where possible.
