A Gift from Dr Romdej Phisalaphong
First Secretary, Royal Thai Embassy to fellow Buddhist in Malaysia

Dear brothers and sisters,

Luang Pu Tohn is a widely respected senior master in the Thai Forest Monk Tradition. Sister Catherine of Ti-Ratana Penchala Community Centre and I jointly and respectfully invited him to visit Malaysia to provide an auspicious opportunity for our friends in Dhamma here to meet and pay respect to him in person.

For almost four years of my posting to Malaysia, I have been highly impressed by the endeavours and dedication of our friends in Dhamma to maintain and spread the teaching of the Lord Buddha. Therefore, before my term ends in June, it is my sincere wish to bring in a very senior master from Thailand to bless our friends here. The period that Luang Pu can visit Malaysia coincides with the Cheng Beng time so we decide to organize a special Remembering Loved Ones Robe Offering Ceremony on 31 March 2013 for our friends in Dhamma, including us, to tranfer merits to our loved ones who passed away.

This is the first time that Luang Pu visits Malaysia and considering his advanced age (becoming 85 years old) he may not be able to travel here again. So if you are free at any of the scheduled times please come to pay respect to him.

With metta,
Romdej
First Secretary, Royal Thai Embassy
