Thai Boy : Samanera : สามเณรไทย

    สามเณร : Samanera :  In Buddhist context, a samanera can be translated as novice monk. It literally means ”small samana”, or small renunciate, where “small” has the meaning of boy or girl.  In the Vinaya (monastic discipline), a man under the age of 20 cannot ordain as a bhikkhu, but can ordain as a samanera. The female counterpart of the samamera is the samaneri. Samaneras and samaneris keep the ten precepts as their code of behavior and are devoted to the Buddhist religious life.   After a year on at the age of 20, a samanera will be considered for the higher Bhikkhu or Bhikkhuni ordination.  Some monasteries will require people who want to ordain as a monk to be a novice for a set period of time, as a period of preparation and familiarization.

     สามเณรไทย : Thai Samaneras : To promote Buddhism. Children can return father – mothers and parents.  Children learn and can help others and discipline.  Today, Thai samameras are insufficient or reduced.    Reasons:    Education  (การศึกษา) :  Inconsistent  between education of Buddhist monks system with  ordinary education system.     Standard (มาตรฐาน) :  Some Wat have low standard control properly and correctly of Monks and Samameras.    Money of education (เงินทุนการศึกษา) :  Not have money or little money for education for Thai samameras.  Request scholarship donations from charitable organizations.     Family (ครอบครัว) :  Family are wealth not popular children are Thai samameras.  Thai samameras  are children from families in rural areas (Farmers , Poor ) and children from parents die or Family have problems. Promotion Parents of children are Thai samameras during summer vacation ( March to April) “ Or - Ra - Han  Summer”. Wish our king and wish Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn birthday April 2  


Where there is a Problem.  There will be a good Changes.
