Observe Alms Giving to the Monks (Early Morning) - 1 Day

Overview

Each morning at dawn, the faithful wait and place rice, curries, or fruit in the monk`s black alms bowls (bahts). This rite provides the monks their only source of food, and the lay people gain merit to ensure a better incarnation in the next life. Almsgiving is a Thai tradition which has been handed down through Buddhist tradition for thousands of years. Almsgiving is an act of generosity that is easily performed and which frees the mind of stinginess, greed, and selfishness. The giver receives happiness and joy from being the one who gives. Thai children usually are trained by their parents to give alms to monks since early childhood — especially to celebrate birthdays or on the first day of term at New year in their schools. Shortly after observing alms giving at a local temple then return to the hotel.
