Desecrating Buddhism Thai Style
Having hosted a dance contest, it seems Wat Phra That Choeng Chum now supports the Thai Shoe Association. Back in the day when Thais would at least pretended to have a clue or care in the least about Buddhism they would take off their shoes when circumambulating that That. Not so modern Thais showing off footware is far surpasses the need to pretend to show respect at seems to pass as a buddhist temple in Sakon Nakhon. I am sure the dancers are paid to look authentic?
