Late King inspired ‘living a good life with self-sufficiency’
Khon Kaen residents expressed their love and loyalty to King Rama IX as they placed funeral flowers in tribute to the late monarch on the Royal Cremation Day on Thursday.
Estimates place the number paying tribute at Wat Pa Seng Arun in Muang district in the thousands.
Noen Chai villager Choy Meemareung said she had camped outside the temple’s screening point since 4am to get near the front of the queue.
Choy said she had a deep-felt gratitude for the late King's great works for the country and Thai people throughout his seven-decade reign.
“I will use His Majesty the late King’s teachings as the guideline to live a good life with self-sufficiency,” she said.
