How to Buy Contact Us for Good Deed and Accumulate Merits Coffin Donation

Many Thai people believe in donation of coffin for the death is the act of making merit. It is because the coffin is meant for the unclaimed death bodies or unidentified and the one with no relative to give them a proper burial. The amount of monetary contribution is according to one's will (as you wish). It is said that the expenses amount required for burial or cremation and rituals with a piece of white cloth for the death required a total amount of 500 Baht. Donors believed by doing so they can acquired merit for themselves. This place is a benevolent and charity center.

It was set up by the Chinese peoples in 1970 (B.E. 2513) “Buddhist Era” who have passed away. He did it during his lifetime, however it have benefited to Thai people. Ruamkatanyu Foundation is open 24 hours a day. Other than the deities statues enshrined there for worship, the main task is the activity for charity donation known as the "Hall of Righteousness and Virtues" located there at Wat Hua Lampong Temple. Whatever if there are accidental occurred in Bangkok, Thailand, the first to show up at the scene was not the team from the hospital but rather they were the rescue team from the Ruamkatayu Foundation.

When death occurred at the accidental scene the rescue teams will helped, clear and clean up the site. For those who without relatives, coffin will be provided from the funds that donated by devotees. Most of the people working there were voluntary workers. You can see at Ruamkatanyu Foundation, although the devotees were mostly Thai people, but there were also sizeable number of devotees that came from Malaysia, Singapore and many other places. Thai peoples believed that making donations for coffin’s will help then to get rid of bad fortune and bring luck, good health, avoid sickness and to protect them from bad things.

Thai people like to make charity, They called it “Tamboon” means “make merit” Tamboon in Thai literately - Tam means “make” and Boon means “merit”.
