Putting Ashes in the Sea

ลอยอังคารของพี่ติ๋ม (วัฒนา) ที่เพิ่งเสียชีวิต ขอให้พี่ได้ไปเกิดในดินแดนสุขาวดี

On 29 December 2009 my cousin Watana died of cancer at Hua-Hin hospital. We got to attend her funeral and cremation. After the body was burnt on 7 January 2010, her family took her ashes to put in the sea the next day. This ritual is called “Loi Angkarn”. Yonten and I joined them so that we could pray for the deceased. It’s a simple ceremony but has a great meaning that teaches us that our body is simply a collection of natural elements.

Back to nature

We pay homage to Buddha Amitabha.

May you be born in Sukhavati!

สวดมนตร์ถึงพระเซวัง ริกซิน ขอพรจากพระองค์ประทานให้ดวงวิญญาณของผู้ล่วงลับได้เกิดใหม่ในภพชาติที่ดีและเพื่อให้เข้าถึงการตรัสรู้
