Description
Phetchabun Governor is supposed to be the person who takes responsibility of both the administration and religion. Every year, there must be the organization of the Um Phra Dam Nam Ceremony, the important tradition of Phetchabun people. Why do we have to carry the buddha image and dive into the river? It is the belief that has unceasingly told from the one to the other. The fishermen went fishing at Pasak River, witnessed the miracle of rough water turning into still water and there was then a whirlpool. After that, a buddha image rose up from the whirlpool. The villagers then brought the buddha image to be enshrined at Wat Trai Phum. The buddha image’s name is Phra Phutta Maha Thammaracha and, on the 15th day of the waning moon of the 10th lunar month in the following year, this buddha image disappeared. The villagers found the buddha image floating at the same initial spot of rising from the water. The Um Phra Dam Nam Ceremony has taken place afterwards. It is the belief to cause seasonal rains, good agricultural outputs and abundant food. This ceremony is held in front of Wat Bot Chana Man. The Governor is the one who carries the buddha image and dive into the river.
