IMG_0449

For the past two years, a very lucky, little, local girl has been receiving support from Lee Marine for her education. Nong Mint, who is now studying in Grade 3, at Srithsoonthorn Banrung School, continues to flourish. The nine year old is a clever child earning top rank in her class last year – Grade Two. In addition, Nong Mint scored highest in the Handwriting competition. Her studies and activities show that she is polite, patient and well mannered, according to her teachers.

IMG_0432 IMG_0436IMG_0425  IMG_0445 IMG_0441Along with Nong Mint’s cash donation, Lee Marine team visited the school recently bearing gifts for all the students from Kindergarten – Grade 6 level.

The Buddhist Lent Day (Wan Khao Phansa)

At Thasak Temple (Wat) situated at Baan Para, Pakklok, Phuket, Lent Candles and offerings were given to the monks to mark this auspicious occasion.

Buddhists believe that offering candles to monk as a means of light will brighten their future.

Buddhist Lent (The Buddhist Lent Day: The First Day of Rainy Season Retreat)

IMG_6231

Commencing the three-month Buddhist Lent, known as Khao Phansa in Thailand, traditionally falls on the first day of the waxing moon of the eighth lunar month. During this period, coinciding with the rainy season, Buddhist monks and novices remain closeted in their particular monasteries, discouraged from spending nights elsewhere. The custom of spending three months of the rainy season in a fixed place is a ritual observed since the time of the Lord Buddha. In bygone days, however, villagers attributed young rice seedling damage at the start of the planting season to unnecessary travel by monks. Realising that monks on pilgrimages could accidentally tread on young plants, the Lord Buddha decreed that his followers spend three months of the rainy season in permanent dwellings.

IMG_6226

In cases of necessity, such as care-giving sick monks, parents or conducting religious functions, monks may travel and stay away from their monasteries during this period. However, they are required to return within seven days. To observe Buddhist Lent, Buddhists usually perform merit making, giving alms to monks, attending sermons and participating in candlelight processions. They also strictly observe Buddhist ethics, especially on holy days. During this annual ‘rain retreat’, monks study more and teach those who have chosen this period to enter monkhood. Laymen usually visit temples to offer monks food, clothing, medicine, flower, joss sticks, Lenten candles and other offerings. Such practices they consider highly meritorious.
