At the memorial site
After the arrival, the grass or plants, the incense sticks and the candle are placed in a designated place. Then each free warrior will remember his or her teachers in his own way. Usually the execution of the teacher greeting (Wai Kru) is thereby common. Only afterwards this greeting ritual one greets the other participants.
Usually the teacher of the school, who does not take part in the ceremony as a teacher but also as a pupil, will tell something about the origin and tradition of the memorial day. It may happen that he or another person present spontaneously acts as a medium and gives additional information or advice to the students present.
We have recorded two of these channelings on video and linked them below.
The ceremony ends with a relaxed get-together. For students attending a teachers memorial day for the first time, this is usually an extraordinary and interesting experience that brings them closer to cultural aspects of Pahuyuth.
