CHAIYAPHUM: -- A 29 year old man was shot in the back of the head during a Buddhist ordination ceremony in a Chaiyaphum village on Monday.

 

Wirachai Saowichit from Pho Thong village was shot in full view of a hundred guests at the ordination ceremony outside the temple of Wat Phu Khao Thong in Khok Sa-art sub-district.

 

Police who rushed to the scene found only bloodstains as villagers had taken the victim to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead, reports Daily News.

 

Wirachai had been shot in the back of the head.

 

Witnesses said that an argument broke out between two groups of men from two different villages during the ordination ceremony.

 

Nong Bua Rawae police said they believe they know the identity of the shooter and are seeking a warrant for his arrest.

Just call him, and ask him to pop in for an interview if he has time.

These ordination ceremonies must be dangerous if you need a gun at one.

 

Thai Buddhism. 

 

Very kind, peaceful, respectful. Just with the odd bit of murder, violence, drug running and money laundering from time to time.

This is obviously a very serious matter.... requiring no less than three pointers.

With a number gun killings so far in the New Year plus carnage on the roads and yet another delay with the election date the scenario has been set  for 2017 to be annus horribilis for Thailand. Is there any good news apart from tourist numbers increasing?

     The Abrahamic Religions.....Christians, Jews and Muslims... consider Buddhism to be a heathen religion.....  so welcome...    Unfortunately all through history..... heathens have killed a great number of people..   So being a heathen does not mean there is no killing... 

 

heath·en

ˈhēT͟Hən/
noun
derogatory
 
  1. 1
    a person who does not belong to a widely held religion (especially one who is not a Christian, Jew, or Muslim) as regarded by those who do.
    synonyms: paganinfidelidolaterhereticunbelieverdisbelievernonbelieveratheistagnosticskeptic
    archaicpaynim
    pagan, synonym of Heathen: someone who does not follow one of the Abrahamic religions (Christianity, Islam, and Judaism); the most common meaning  ...also Neopaganism... and followers of re-created ancient Pagan religions.. Germanic paganism...  Norse paganism. Ancient Greco-Roman Paganism, North American and South American Native paganism, Hinduism, Buddhism Jainism Taoism, Shintoism, etc.

     

     

     This murder is a horrible violation of the very first of the Buddhist  Five Precepts....

1. I undertake the training rule to abstain from killing.   Pāṇātipātā veramaṇī sikkhāpadaṃ samādiyāmi.

              That precept means not just humans... but all sentient beings..  

          If the killer is a Buddhist.....then he is Buddhist in name only....  not in reality.

The good news is I am never going to visit Thailand again.

Yes. Like Catholics and Protestants in Northern Ireland.
