The navy is creating amulets and medals to sell to fund the renovation of a revered shrine dedicated to a former admiral.
Vice Adm. Choomsak Nakwijit, commander of the Sattahip Naval Base, chaired the June 19 worship ceremony to pay respect to the spirit of former Prince and Admiral Jumbhorn Khet Udomsak, better known to the navy as Sadet Tia.
The Dhewa Pisek ceremony blessing Sadet Tia amulets was held at the prince’s shrine at the base’s Phu Chao Pier.
On June 29, the base will welcome Sangkakitburapa, widely-known as Luang Phu Bua Tamgo, from Sriburaparam Temple who will lead the Buddha Pisek ceremony where participants individually recite incantations, write character symbols and auspicious mystic symbols on gold, silver, tin and copper sheets and cast them into souvenir medals.
The money raised through sale of amulets and medals will go to renovate the Sadet Tia shrine.
