The Nationwide Rain-Retreat Ordination 2012 Program of 100,000 Monks

The Superb Life is the Monk who wears the Saffron Robes

“The Ordination” is not only the cultural preservation which men have had to do. If you consider the benefits of the ordination, they are enormous which each monk realizes that the ordination benefits his current life, guarantees his journeys in the cycle of reincarnation and also gives him a chance to study the highest objective of freeing himself from all sufferings.

 Dhammadayada Candidates in the ordination ceremony

When a son of a family is ordained, even in the short period, that family’s members are happy and hope that when he disrobes, he will be a good person by the morality.  When he has a family, he will be a father who understands more about his environment, the world, and life.  His wife will get him as a husband who is mild, cool, prudent, and calm.  His community will get him as a member who knows himself and others.  The country will get him as a citizen who has well-trained mind, and finally, the world society will be driven to be the real peaceful society.
