Songkran Day Celebration วัน สงกราน

We will be preparing to observe Songkran as a community, with the customs of bathing our 'miracle' Buddhas (i.e. those that survived the fire and demolition) and asking for forgiveness from the Sangha and each other. This will happen around the meal time, with no special time-table laid out yet.

About the Event

Having celebrated the International New Year and the Chinese New Year already, we are looking forward to another annual milestone; the Thai/Sri Lankan/Cambodian New Year ('Songkran') is coming up on Tuesday April 13th, which coincides with the sun moving into the constellation Aries. We will be preparing to observe Songkran as a community on Sunday April 11th, with the customs of bathing our 'miracle' Buddhas (i.e. those that survived the fire and demolition) and asking for forgiveness from the Sangha and each other. This will happen around the meal time, with no special time-table laid out as of yet.
