Niwit Aroonrat, a Vice Governor of Phuket, said that a central government committee led by the Prime Minister, would host 999 Buddhist monks’ ordination, during January 9th – 24th 2011 nationwide, to honor H.M. the King Bhumipol and to celebrate his 84th birthday next year. Each province has to send 11 male volunteers to ordinate in this event, therefore he would like to publicize this to any men intending to ordinate in the mentioned event.
The application can be made in Phuket Buddhism Office or dial 076 221943 and 076 221944 until November 25th. The list of 11 men who can join the event will be announced on December 1st. These people will not have to pay any expenses for their ordination.
