Chonburi continues celebrating the 2,600th anniversary of Lord Buddha’s enlightenment, most recently by giving alms to 108 monks.

Gov. Khomsan Ekachai led the Oct. 27 Buddha Jayanti ceremony at Phra Phutta Seehing Hall in Chonburi.

Khomsan invited 108 monks to perform religious ceremonies, chanting the Jakkapwattanasut as a form of respect to the three gems consisting of Lord Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha. The ceremony was also held as a dedication to Royal Family.

Buddha Jayanti commemorations have taken place throughout 2012 to mark Buddha’s enlightenment and declaration against evil and all forms of desires.
