|Hloung Por So ton|
I’m back… after 4 weeks, I have been traveling in Thailand and have a lot of stories to tell you. Unfortunately my internet in Thailand was not that good, that is the reason I couldn’t post the blog, but don’t worry I wrote and kept a very well diary of my events, so let us start with my first trip in Thailand… This trip my parents brought me to one of our temples that my family respects. It is “Wad-So-Ton”. They have a story about the image of Buddha in this holy temple called “Hloung Por So ton”. A long time ago people saw three images of Buddha float against the tide, all of the people tried to take it out from the river, but no one can do it until the image of Buddha stopped and set on shore of three temples 1st is Bann Ham in Samutsongkram Province, The 2nd is Bang PreYai Temple in Samutprakan Province, and the 3rd in this So-Ton Temple Chachangsol, so the monk in the temple invited people with respect into the temple for worship with offerings until now.
In the present people, still are respectful in this temple. They still pray, wish and make a vow promising a thank-offering if one’s request is granted. You can see all of the people bringing boiled eggs, head of a pig, flowers and hiring people to do a Thai style dance after their request is granted.
