HM King Vajiralongkorn offers Royal Titles to Seniour Monks

On July 28, 2019 HM King of Thailand kindly bestowed high honours on Luang Por Sumdeho, Luang Por Pasanno, Luang Por Amaro, and Luang Por Jayasaro by granting them ecclesiastical titels (or “Jaokhun”-tiles), with the royal names of Phra Thepnyanavithet for Luang Por Sumedho, Phra Rachabodhiviteht for Luang Por Pasanno, Phra Rachabuddhivorakhun for Luang Por Amaro, and Phra Rachabajramahnit for Luang Por Jayasaro. The Royal Offering of the respective cereminal fans, triple robes and certificates was held at the Grand Palace in Bangkok.


The Sangha of Wat Pah Nanachat would like to wholeheartedly express their joy on this auspicious occasion. The monks, novices and laypeople at the monastery felt honoured to be able to receive two of the new “Jaokhuns”, Phra Rachabuddhivorakhun (Luang Por Amaro) and Phra Rachabajramahnit (Luang Por Jayasaro) at Wat Pah Nanachat on July 30th, and pay respects to them together, including in their hearts Luang Por Sumedho and Luang Por Pasanno, who unfortunately weren’t able to join the ceremonies.
