Mass merit ceremonies are also to be organised for the 7th, 50th and 100th day of mourning, from Oct 13. Provincial meditation centres should organise seven days of meditation on each of those dates.

The rites may be at the time of the King’s passing, at 3:52pm, or other appropriate times.

Each temple should also prepare an altar table, together with an image of the King, inside the bot (ordination hall) or other suitable place.

Monks are instructed to meditate for the King after their normal evening prayers.

Lay people are also urged to join in the Buddhist ceremonies over the one-year mourning period.

There are about 33,000 Buddhist temples in Thailand, according to the SSC.
