Luangpu Boon Song is now guiding the monks and folks abide the rules and discipline of Buddhism.
His words of wisdom are ‘ As a monk, we should not take advantage of believers who provide us our meal & water as we do not stay in the temple for the sake of food, rest but to reassurance that our believers rewarded with good karma for their efforts in our sincere ritual praying.’
