Ordination ceremony – 22 June 2021

On 22 June 2021 an ordination ceremony was held for one man to be a monk for three weeks.

This was the first ordination to be held in the newly-consecrated Phra Ubosot (ordination hall).

The monk being ordained is wearing white in the first few photos and videos. Then he is taken to be dressed in monk’s saffron (yellow-orange) robes, and continues the vows and ceremonies.

This one-time monk still comes and helps around Wat Khao Tham.

Our Phra Chaiwat can be seen on the left end of the row of monks closest to us, with his back to viewer.

Masks are being worn to protect each other, as this is during the Covid-19 pandemic of 2021
