Donation of 362,324 THB supporting AIDS patient Wat Prabatnampu on Buddhist Lent Day

The Buddhist Lent Day, or Wan Khao Phansa period, consists of three lunar months during the rainy season when monks are required to remain in one particular place. Most activities on Wan Khao Phansa are similar to other Buddhism Holy days. Two main important rituals presented to the monks are candles and a monk’s garment, especially the bathing robe. This year Hana Ayutthaya organized “The Buddhist Lent Day” on July 25, 2018, led by Mr. Richard Han (CEO) and Mr. Sanjay (VP&GM).

They started with offering food to the monks, then molding candles. Normally, people make large candles for the monks to use during rainy season. Some believe that as result of this custom that this would make them brighter and smarter, referring to the characteristic of candlelight. After that, Mr. Richard and Mr. Sanjay, along with Hana employees, offered a donation in the amount of 362,324 THB to Chao Khun Alongkot Tikapanyo, Phra Udom Prachathorn, and Abbot of Wat Prabatnampu Temple in support of the AIDS patient Wat Prabatnampu.
