Roof Restoration for Wat Mae Selak @ Chiang Mai (Makha Bucha Day)
The funds raised will be submitted to the Temple for Roof Restoration on Makha Bucha Day, Mar 6, 2023, which is in a week time. Subsequent fund-raising and submission date of funds will be announced soon.
Makha Bucha, also known as "National Gratitude Day”, practices Lord Buddha’s love to people where Buddhists are encouraged to remember the Lord Buddha’s compassionate and wise teachings, and to show gratitude by doing good deeds and avoiding immoral acts.
How is Makha Bucha Celebrated?
Generally, on Makha Bucha day, Buddhists will visit the temple to make offerings as the day marks a day of gratitude through good deeds to purify the way of life.
For those who wish to submit your prayer requests so that the dedication of merits by Senior Monks can be arranged for you, you are strongly encouraged to do so early, so that the info can be consolidated and passed to the temple.
Please avoid last-minute submission, which will be difficult to accommodate as I'm often on the road.
Roof Restoration for Wat Mae Selak @ Chiang Mai:
Wat Mae Selak, located in Chiang Mai, is in the process of rebuilding the roof. More than 2,000 pieces of tiles are needed to complete the roof restoration.
This is a very rare opportunity for people to donate the tiles for temple roof restoration.
It is a wonderful opportunity for people to help to protect the Buddha Statues, important holy artefacts, offering devotees and monks within the temple to have a proper and safe place for religious practices and worship 🙏 🙏 🙏
The tiles will have your name and date of birth written on it and will be placed at the roof as a remembrance of your kind and compassionate, bringing about positive merits to you.
A lay person who offers the tiles sincerely will accumulate immeasurable merits upon themselves and their families and loved ones, bringing immense benefits to them according to ancient Buddhist teachings:
Your merits will be enhanced 100s fold:
The benefits of donating tiles to shelter the temple:
* Health will improve and be freed from all diseases or unnatural deaths. * It gives good honour and good achievement in your business or work. * It benefits the family to be in a higher status. * It enhances the person merits for this life and next life. * It provides the person with an abundance of fortune. * It removes all bad obstacles, and you will always be protected. * It shelters you from all bad things or bad energy. * Your next life will be born in a good high-status family and good life.
Offer with sincerity and a heart of gratitude for the Lord Buddha’s teachings - and remember to provide us with your date of birth and names, and any prayer requests for yourself and your loved ones, sharing merits with your family, guardian devas, ancestors, departed relatives, karmic debtors and any beings who is able to receive the merits from such meritorious act of donating tiles to restore the roof of the temple.
