Deputy Mayor Pornchai Kwansakul invited 99 monks to express loyalty and love toward Their Majesties the King and Queen as part of a national merit-making ceremony.
In Chonburi, 99 monks prayed for the royal couple’s prosperity, development, health, happiness and longevity. They also wished for Their Majesties’ kindness to spread far and wide while remaining at the center of all Thai hearts.
Pornchai saluted HM the King and Queen as representatives of the four foundations for accomplishment that Lord Gautama Buddha and Phra Ananda Thera had found in the Buddhist scriptures in Thanikai Mahawak, which states that one who had done much, made much, made foundations until it has become stable, complete, began; that individual when determined can live for an eternity.
