A Monk’s New Robes in Thailand

Last Updated on

 

I was on my way to see The Chinese Village (aka Suntichon Village) on my new motorbike rental. Freedom at last!  Along the way, I made a stop at this local temple.  All throughout Thailand during this time, there’s a celebratory period, which honors monks and signals their changing of old and worn robes. Buddhist devotees purchase and donate gift baskets and/or fresh robes for the monks to wear in the new year.

Here are some photos of things which are given to monks:

You can purchase and donate one of these baskets for the monks (it holds simple items,
such as food, incense, a miniature buddha statue and flashlights, etc… as well as a new robe for the monks)

Some baskets come with some snacks, incense and practical things like a flashlight!

Honored and revered monks of the past.
