Nalanda wishes all our Thai Ajahns and friends a joyous Songkran Festival. May this coming year bring much peace, happiness, and well-being to all Thais and people around the world!
Songkran celebration is traditionally connected with water. ‘Rod naam dum hua’ is a term that describes the act of pouring water over the hands of elders. This is usually performed by children symbolically to pay respects to their parents and grandparents. The elders would then give blessings and offer their best wishes for the coming year.
