After seeing this monk blessing THAI Airways plane, do you feel a lot safer? It may seem strange to some people but this kind of thing is quite common in Thailand. If you buy a car or motorcycle you can get it blessed by a monk at your local temple. But first, consult him to see which day of the week and exact time you are allowed to take it home. Monks are also called upon to bless new houses and shops. If you cannot arrange for a monk to visit your new business premises, just bring the sign along to the temple and he will bless it there for you.
