On 25th November 2011, Phra Bhramavathee, the Abbot of Wat Trimitravidhayaram Voravihara, Director of the Sangha Commission Abroad, the Thai Sangha Council, led a presentation to the monks who have been promoted in the Thai Sangha Order of Precedence.
The promotions are awarded to the monks who have taken the vows to be ordained as Buddhist monks and be true to the Triple Gems for life. They are monks who conduct themselves in good manners and behaviours. They also possess the sense of obligation and devotion to work in propagating and perpetuating Buddhism.
Phra Pongsak Suppavangso the assistance to the abbot of Wat Phra Dhammakaya Duneden, New Zealand and Phra Adul Chantupamo secretary of Wat Phra Dhammakaya Sydney, Australia, are among the monks who have been promoted this time. Their hard work and dedication to all tasks have been of great assistance to Phra Kru Palad Nayogvoravat (Most Ven. Sudahhmo the chief monks of Dhammakaya Centres in Oceania), in establishing Buddhism in the Australia, New Zealand and the Oceania region.
