Wat Chong Lom held its annual ceremonies to pay tribute to former monks on July 9, with 27 monks throughout the four regions of Thailand who have been in the priesthood for more than 10 years attending the temple in Naklua.
Abbot Wimonthammasit led the ceremony in which robes and food were laid out as offerings to the monks, and eminent monks who included Phra Dhamathorasurung of Wat Tepsirin in Bangkok and Phra Pisanwinaiwat of Wat Bowornniwet Wihara, also in Bangkok, conducted the chanting.
Many leaders of the community attended the ceremony, including Mayor Niran Wattanasartsathorn, superintendent of Banglamung Police Station Pol Col Sarayuth Sa-Nguanpokai, head of the Banglamung Cultural Assembly Surat Mekavarakul, and Banglamung District chief Pratheep Chongsoubtham.
Wat Chong Lom holds this ceremony paying respects to the spirits of departed senior monks each year, as a time of merit making for the community.
