It’s part of the Thai Buddhist custom for a young man to be ordained as a monk at least once in his life, singer and actor ‘Tono’ Pakin Kumvilaisak has taken on this path. Tono was ordained today at the Intharam Temple in Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya province. He was given the monk nickname Suttimano meaning a person who has a pure heart. He will be ordained for 14 days.
At the ordination Tono’s mom was overcome with joy, she cried. You can check out pictures from the ordination below at the rakdara.net link.
