The Prime Minister has invited the general public to cleanse their bodies and minds during the Vegetarian Festival, and extends a warning against opportunistic price hikes during the festival.
Prime Minister Gen. Prayut Chan-o-cha has announced during his Return Happiness to the People television program, that the Vegetarian Festival from 1-9 October is not only just about abstaining from eating meat and turning to vegetables and fruits. The festival is an opportunity for the stomach to take in necessary vitamins for healing itself and repairing other parts of the body.
Those participating should maintain a clean state of body and mind, which extends to the body, spoken words and thought, working in unison to uphold religious vows.
The Prime Minister says the Vegetarian Festival is a good occasion to attract good things towards oneself, which will result in the body and mind to flourish, and encourages the general public to participate during the nine days and nine nights of the festival.
The concept of the festival will support farmers and agricultural products, says the Prime Minister, and warns against opportunistic price hikes during the period.
