During the Kathina season this year, Mr. Fabio Chinda, Consul General of Thailand in New York, presided over the Royal Kathina Ceremonies at Mongkoltepmunee Temple in Pennsylvania on 31 October 2021, and at Buddha Thai Thavornvanaram Temple in New York on 14 November 2021 on the occasions that His Majesty the King of Thailand graciously granted the royal robes to Mr. Kongsak Chantornsaeng to offer to Mongkoltepmunee Temple and to Mrs. Somsri Ratanaprasatporn and Mrs. Busara Chansakul to offer to Buddha Thai Thavornvanaram Temple respectively.
Consul General, along with his spouse, officials, and staff of the Royal Thai Consulate General, also joined the Thai community and other participants at both Temples in offering necessary supplies to the monks.
The Royal Kathina Ceremony marks a special time of the year when Buddhists gather to support the livelihood of the Buddhist monks under the royal auspices of His Majesty the King with a view to fostering Buddhism in foreign countries. The event also takes part in strengthening the Thai community in the United States as well as enhancing friendship between Thais and locals.
