Thai – South African Newsletter Volume 26

March – April 2010

.


For the month of March and April 2010, the special issue, Volume 26, of the local Thai – South African Newsletter is now ready for all readers. Find a special column on the establishment of a Farang Association for Culture & Trade Johannesburg (Farang is a Thai word traditionally for addressing a Westerner — formerly from France during the 17th century in the Kingdom of Siam).

The annual ‘Songkran’ Water Festival’ is around the corner. Both Farang Association (F.A.C.T.) & Thai Association (T.A.C.T.) in conjunction with the Johannesburg Meditation Centre (J.M.C.) are holding the spectacular festival to celebrate Thailand’s traditional New Year in such a way that both ‘culture’ and ‘trade’ can be appropriately addressed and  incorporated.

Thai Airways International (THAI) is re-launching a direct flight between Bangkok and Johannesburg for 4 flights a week, starting mid-May 2010. Full details in the issue.

Global Peace is on the move whereas 40 youths from 23 nations in all 6 continents (of course including Africa) took part in the meditation retreat in Chiangmai, Thailand.  Our Buddhist monk from the Johannesburg Meditation Centre also took part in guiding meditation to these youths of Peace Revolution Project. This is the practical peace-making whereas some key global organizations are spending billions only for peace-keeping. The Speechless Peace Conference was thus introduced.
