The Buddhist Theology Examination in the 9th Grade
Bangkok Bank has continued to organize a congratulatory luncheon for Buddhist monks who have passed the examination in the ninth grade, the highest grade, in Buddhist theology. The luncheon was held for the 46th year in 2019 and altogether 1,620 graduates, comprising 1,367 monks and 253 novices, have participated in the Bank’s ceremonies. Most of the monks remain ordained today, indicating their acceptance of the important responsibility of maintaining the religion.
In 2019, 35 monks and five novices passed the test. The five novices will be ordained as monks under royal patronage. Bangkok Bank is proud to help maintain religion by supporting the education of Buddhist monks.
