Do you know where you come from? What makes people
different from each other. Someone was born in a rich family, but feel very lonely. On the
other hand, someone was born in a poor family, but feel so warm. There is no perfect world
in the real life. Someone is very lucky in gambling, someone has to work so hard to get a
little paid. According to Thai Belief, we believe that every result must come from the
cause. We are not trying to make up a story just to make people believe. However, we want
the readers to realize that you will get what you have done. If you behave well, then you
will get good return. If you behave badly and selfish, then you will get bad treatment
from others. If you get rich by hurting others, then your money will be taken away by your
children whom you will never refuse. There are a lot of things that happen in our lives.
If you just look back and open up your mind, you will see the reason why you have to do
things that way or this way. Religion is the central of people's mind. Each religion
teaches people to do good things, to behave themselves and to help others.
You do know why you all have been taught like that?
Because we all want our lives to be better not only the rest of your life, but also for
the next life.
Thai people like to visit temples when they are feeling
happy, feeling down and feeling fear. We will visit temples and give food to monks on our
birthday, new house celebration, Thai new year, wedding day, anniversary day and religious
days. It makes us feel good all day. In addition, we visit temples and give food to monks
on the funeral day, and whenever we feel down. Giving food to the monks and donation is
one way to make merit in our soul. Some of you have even seen Thai people release birds
and fish at the temples. That's another way to make merit which is to give life to
animals. There are many ways that you all can make merit. Nowaday, people are so rush and
selfish. We need people to give things that you have more than enough to others, give them
opportunity and chances are they can help you in return in the future. You'll never know.
What will happen after the Millennium. Therefore, we all have to hold on together and help
each other, then we can create tremendous power. Nothing can destroy our world…I
