Eastern real estate developer Porchland Group continued its public outreach efforts by organizing an ordination ceremony for Buddhist monks in Korat.
Chitnucha Phakdeesaneha, administrator for Worakit Construction and Porchland Group, led a trip by 30 company employees to Pa Donyai Temple in Nakhon Ratchasima March 30.
Employees attended the ordination ceremony for 80 novices and presented monks with robes and essential items as a group merit-making exercise. The company also donated funds to build a new sermon hall.
Porchland Group continued its public outreach efforts by organizing an ordination ceremony for Buddhist monks in Korat.
The ordination was for 80 youths on school holiday who wanted to become monks temporarily to learn Buddhist dharma.
The merit-making was only the latest such effort by Porchland, which previously organized a merit-making ceremony at Thungthiang Temple in Chonburi and built a large statue of Lord Buddha at Laem Chabang Temple.
Pa Donyai is a small temple in a rural area of central Thailand that still lacks many amenities. Porchland has been supporting the temple for six years.
