Sadhu for everyone who has joined Wat Homsil in helping this activity.
"Pang Perd Lok" is the word recalling the event that Lord Buddha's returned to Earth after delivering a sermon to his dead mother in heaven.
the seventh year after Lord Buddha's enlightenment, he decided to give a
sermon to his dead mother, Sirimahamaya, in Dusit heaven, so he stayed
in the heaven for three months from "Khao Phansa" (Buddhist Lent) to "Ok
Phansa" (the end of Buddhist Lent).
On Ork Phansa day, the 15th
day of the 11th waxing moon, Lord Buddha had come back to Earth and
made the miracle that all realms (heaven, human, and hell) can see each
other while he was going down.
Next morning, the 1st day of the
11th waning moon, most citizens made a big "Tak Bat" (offering food to
the Buddhist monk) as they had not seen Lord Buddha for almost three
months. That event was originally called "Tak Bat Theworohana" or "Tak
Bat Thewo" in order to celebrate coming back of Buddha and this
merit-making event has been a festival in Thailand until now.
believe making or adding beauty to Buddha images is great merit. Not
only happiness when seeing, but also we will be protected, enhanced and
not go to hell. "
