  phra prajam wan (Buddhism)

 

Thailand

Phra prajam wan (geut) is a system of personal worship in Thailand in which each day of the week corresponds with a certain representation of a Buddha image for the day on which someone is born (fig.). One will offer to the image of his/her birthday and personal characteristics are derived from it. Monetary gifts can be put in the alms bowls in front of the images.
