Description

The monks have returned from downstairs to conduct the chanting that will bless the ordained and the laity. The monks are led in the chanting by the abbot, Venerable Sao Khon (background). Venerable Sao Khon was consulted to determine and auspicious day to perform the ordination ceremony. It is believed that this day must be in harmony with the ordained's personal orientation to the stars and planets.
