Saying prayers on New Year’s Eve

New Year prayers are a tradition. Thai Buddhists gather at temples to pray and meditate together and, on New Year’s Eve, to listen to monks giving sermons about living a good life. This year, the prayers were held at 58 temples in Bangkok and its suburbs.

Thai PBS World spoke to the younger generation what they think about New Year prayers. After that, let’s hear from the abbot of Ratchasingkorn Temple about the history of New Year prayers and their purpose.
