The start of a new building at our temple


In our village was this week an Buddhist ceremony to bless the construction of a new building at the temple. At the same day people from the village were making offerings to the temple, so it was a big party. For that some people were asked to contribute in giving food & drinks to all people making offerings at the temple. We did rent a big ice-cream bucket with cocos-ice-cream and did give everybody ice-cream. Other people did give food & drinks. It was a nice community happening with most of the people of the small village.

The ceremony to bless the construction did consist of 2 things. First there was a kind of foundation where the "first" stones would be laid. Then secondly the first pole for the construction was raised. And people put some coins in the ground at the first pole. Following are some photos of another day living in Thailand.
