Look Nimit – the part of Buddhist merit making
According to a Buddhist dictionary, “Look Nimit” means a round object with size about a monk’s alms bowl usually made of stone used as a mark around the Buddhist chapel or Ubosot; to properly separate the area for monks to do religious rites.
A ceremony to bury Look Nimit is known as “Fang Look Nimit” or formally called “Phuk Phatthasima”. This ceremony has been conventionally done when the Ubosot is completely built.
There are 9 Look Nimit around the Ubosot; 1 in the middle of the Ubosot and the rest in 8 directions. Before burying Look Nimit, 4 monks walk and bless at the fixed points from the east to the east called “Suad Thak Sima”. Next, monks assemble in the Ubosot and bless again. After that, a monk releases Look Nimit from the basket into each hole where there will be “Sema” built on the ground as a symbol.
This is a holy ceremony believed whoever takes part (attend the event, donate money or put a gold leaf on Look Nimit) will have beneficial results as follows:
1. Having no illness every life.
2. Never to be born in a poor family.
3. If being born in the world will be in a high caste or royal family.
4. If being born in the heavenly world will be a high angel.
5. A person with a perfect living status and nice complexion.
6. Having long life.
Some Thai people put a book, pencil, needle and thread in the hole of Look Nimit believed to bring sharp intellect like a needle and continuous progression like the length of the thread.
