To commensurate the 10 year anniversary of Samnak, a series of events was being held. On 27 May 2010 (Wesak eve), a special blessing service was held:

We started with the early morning chanting before dawn:

The special chanting lasted for few hours- to invite the blessings of the Buddha for the 3 universe. During that time, the sky was exceptionally cloudless:

Many of Khun Mae’s followers- in Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and US travelled to Samnak to attend this aspicious event. Most took the opportunity to observe 8 precepts:

We all had known how difficult it was for Khun Mae during her initial years of struggling to built the temple and how tough she had been despite facing many obstacles. We are all very happy that finally she was able to hold this event.
