Thai New Year 2016
On Saturday, April 16, 2016 we will celebrate Thai New Year. The Thai New Year is closely connected with the Buddhist teaching which is an integral part of Buddhist life. It is not just a Thai event. This is because the Teaching makes up the roots of Buddhist culture. It is a day on which Buddhists honor their ancestors and their contributions and show respect to them by making merit in the way of good acts in their memory. We would therefore like to invite everyone to join us in this celebration in paying respects to all our ancestors and their contribution to our present day lives.
