    Re: Vegetarian Festival in Samut Prakan 2009 เทศกาลกินเจ



    I will be doing a new thread about the Acting Supreme Patriarch of Thailand at Rong Jay (Vegetarian House) today as it wasn't really much to do with the Vegetarian Festival. This will kick off tomorrow at 2 p.m. at Rong Jay Thong Siang near Taiban Circle. I have marked it on the map above. Best places to find an abundance of vegetarian food is Taiban Circle and Racha Market. These only open in the late afternoon. Just look for the yellow flags.

    At 2 p.m. this afternoon I visited Thong Siang Vegetarian House (Rong Jay) to watch the ceremony that launched the start of the Vegetarian Festival in Samut Prakan. This runs from now until 27th October 2009.

    This is the first ceremony. It was done outside but it faced the main shrine inside the building.

    That was my last set of pictures from the opening ceremony of the Vegetarian Festival twhere the nine gods were called to come down from heaven. I don't often visit Chinese ceremonies so if anyone would like to fill in any details then please feel free to do so.

    There is chanting and wien tien at Rong Jay every day now. I think the next event that I will attend is Loy Krathong Jay on the evening of 22nd October 2009.

    These are some pictures that I took at Taiban Circle at lunchtime. Not too many stalls open at this time but still a good choice. The banner across the road is encouraging the people of Paknam to join together to celebrate the Vegetarian Festival.

    This is video that I shot during the opening ceremony of the Vegetarian Festival at Rong Jay. The first shot shows the Acting Supreme Patriarch from the day before.
