Merit Making:Ruamkatanyu Foundation (Bangkok) – Offering a coffin for a good cause Making merit is a way of life for most Thai people. There are many ways of making merit in Thailand such as giving alms to monks and setting captured animals free?? but coffin donation is unique. An old Thai proverb says : if you do good you will receive good; if you do evil you will receive evil.

Making merit is a good way to accuminate good Karma for present and next life.

Besides paying respect to Four-Faced Buddha and Guan Yin Chao Mae, coffin donation to the less privileged has become part of travel routine in Bangkok.

Founded on 22 June Buddhist Era 2513, the Ruamkatanyu Foundation (Bangkok)  provides coffins to victims killed in accidents or murdered in the event that no one comes forward to make a claim or identify the body.

Making a Donation: 
Step 1 - The donation sum is voluntary and a donation of 500THB entitled a coffin and a piece of white cloth for the body. Go to the many receptions, they will advise you.  Just simply write your name or family members on the pink slip and you’ll receive your tax deductible receipt. Paste the pink slip on the yellow wooden coffin and make a prayer.

Step2 - Pick 20 joss-sticks and go outside the temple, prayed and place the joss-sticks into the labeled urns. 

Step3 - prayed and burn away the official receipt. 

CONGRATULATION !!! you have done a good merit.  the good feeling cannot be explained in words

As a Buddhist, I believe in Karma. Let’s make this world a better place by giving
