Emotional “Healing Ceremony” Held in Thailand’s Capital

National ‘healing ceremonies’ were held throughout the Thai capital of Bangkok on Wednesday. The gatherings, of which the largest was at Lumpini Park, were staged in an effort to repair the immense social, economical and physical damage created as a direct result of the 2 month long anti-government rallies that had been inflicted upon the capital.

Bangkok, the 26th of May 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: The primary ceremony, staged in front of the statue of King Rama VI at the entrance to Lumpini Park, was jointly organised by the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) and the Ratchaprasong Square Trade Association (RSTA). Attended by local residents, business owners, administrators and representatives from five key religious groups – Buddhists, Christians, Muslims, Brahmins and Hindus – the event was organised to help ‘heal the people’ whilst presenting a positive conclusion to the turmoil in Bangkok to the wider international audience.

The largely religious ceremony included a wide variety of prayers, rituals and motivational speeches whilst the gathered audience also queued to give alms to a contingent of over 1,000 Buddhist monks. A large turnout of Thai and foreign citizens living and working in the area attended the event which was directly in view of both the Ratchaprasong and Sala Daeng Intersections where most of the violence and destruction of the past two months took place.

Bangkok’s Governor Mr. Sukhumbhand Paribatra stated that the ceremony was to mark a ‘new beginning’ for the city of Bangkok, considered a symbolic hub for the economical development of the nation affectionately known as the ‘Angel City.’ The governor urged all people to focus on forgiveness and harmony following the conclusion of the recent conflict and violence in the capital.

The ceremony followed Sunday’s municipal cleaning day, organised by the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA, in which local residents and businesses came together with municipal officers to cleanup the Ratchaprasong Intersection and the surrounding area. The project was created under the banner “Together We Can.” Many of the participants aided the operation further by bringing their own cleaning tools, garbage bags and detergents, whilst various independent food sellers supplied the volunteers with food and water throughout the day long cleanup project.
