2 sacred oxen, Phra Kho Fa and Phra Kho Lert, are each offered seven bowls containing different food. Paddy rice, maize, water, grass, soybean, sesame seeds and liquor. The oxen ate the grass during the Royal Ploughing Ceremony today at Sanam Luang near the Grand Place, a forecast that the country will have plentiful water, abundant food and good harvests and abundant food production were predicted for the coming crop year.
On behalf of His Majesty the King, Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn, accompanied by his daughter Princess Bajrakitiyabha, presided over the ceremony, which marks the beginning of the rice cultivation season today.
But I thought Thailand will experience its worst drought in more than 15 years this year.
What are you talking about! The 2 sacred oxen know better. They ate the grass. What’s wrong with you! Holy Cow!
