A Sea of Yellow: My King of Hearts

His Majesty The King Rama IX Bhumipol Adulyadej The Great is not just a beacon of hope for his people. He is more than Thailand’s symbol of unity. Through his dedication and by setting an example for others, he has earned not merely the trust and respect of his subjects, but a deep reverence for his wisdom and his affinity with the Thai people.

Prajao Yuhua is without any doubt my eternal Guiding Light. This is no simple ruler of Thailand, His Majesty is without a fragment of doubt the Living Rama on Earth. As the Buddhist scriptures put it, His Majesty is the Greatest Chakravatin of all time — the King of all Kings, and The Living Boddhisattva On Earth !

With the ongoing most auspicious Sixtieth Anniversary of His Majesty’s Ascension to the Throne, the whole Thai nation and all Thais worldwide are rejoicing with His Majesty. Although I am only 1/8 Thai, I am so happy to share His Majesty’s birthdate of December 5, and we even share the same birth colour! Not unlike 64 million Thais in 76 provinces, I have also been wearing yellow as a mark of respect to my Greatest King on Earth!

I wish I could be at the Ananda Samakhon Throne Hall to pay my respects at the feet of His Majesty! Unfortunately, I am at least 1,500km away. At least, I am with His Majesty in spirit. I bow and prostrate with my deepest reverence, respect and veneration!

May All The Buddhas, the Devas and Brahman Deities Look Upon His Majesty!
Long Live His Majesty
Long May His Majesty Remain My Guiding Light

  1. Rao Rak Nai Luang!

    Great article, K 🙂

  2. I firmly believe that the thai monarch could of chosen a life of ribbon cutting and jet setting but he did neither. He has dedicated untold hours to the betterment of his nation and it is his ‘bramee’ that holds the thai nation together.

    This occasion shows the world how much he is truly beloved by thais but its also a chance for non thais to show appreciation to someone who has dedicated 60 years of his life to improving the lives of millions. We think how great an acheivement when we can affect postive change in just one person but how great of an acheivement is it when you can affect that kind of change in nation of millions.

    As he is considered the ‘father’ of the thai nation he has like any father tried to quietly teach his children. He has taught his subjects to look to democracy, judicial processes and the courts to disloves disputes and not to look to the monarch.

    I personally interperted it as if he is trying to say he is not going to be on this earth for ever to solve these issues for them (for as much as thais shudder to think he wont be). He is a human who will one day face mortality like the rest of us. Not to sound macabe or rain on the parade but this is the realist in me looking at the face of a selfless man who looks tired and weary from guiding an entire nation for 60 years.

    If thais do not listen and practice his carefully chosen words of wisdom and we find outselves suddenly living without him then we will be ok because he has laid the groundstones for a stable thailand where democracy is King and not a human being.

    In my eyes and in my heart his greatest legacy above all others will be the way he has encouraged democracy. There is no greater right in life than choose your own destiny. I assume as he was born into the royal role he didnt get to choose his but in encouraging democracy he giving thais the chance to just that determine the course of the nations destiny.

  3. Thailands beloved monarch, born in 1927 in USA, has become a real Superman to the Thai people.

    The longest reigning monarch on Earth has taught his people well, democracy and peace are constants in daily Thai life!

    Long life the King

  4. Your article and additional comments are so very well written! I was so overwhelmed, I had tears in my eyes. We are so lucky aren’t to feel this affiliation, where you have to be Thai to understand and appreciate it. I have my Nai Luang too! Well done guys!!! //(^ __^)\\

  5. Hi. This is a note for all those that are out of Thailand. It is now August – the article above was written in June. But still everyday I see a sea of yellow. It is amazing. Everyday in Thailand for the last few months, about 60 – 70 % of people are wearing yellow to show their love of their amazing King. It is such a beautiful thing to see.
