In the year 1778, the Kingdom of Laos became part of Siam, in the reign of King Taksin the Great.
Later, in 1826, Prince Anouvong of Laos led the rebellion against Siam, with several battles until the
year 1829, then he was captured by Siam army. He and his family were brought to Bangkok for
punishment. After that, he fell sick and died on 26 February 1829.
In December 2014, Master Acharavadee Wongsakon and her students visited Luang Prabang, the
ancient capital of Lan Chang Kingdom (Laos). During the visit, she felt the strong current of anger,
hatred and bitterness in the surrounding around. It was caused by the long history of Laos and Siam,
with the most critical one – the ending of Prince Anouvong and his family.
After meditation practice, Master Acharavadee and her students dedicated the merit to their souls as
well as all those who suffered in the battles between the two countries. They also shared loving-
kindness to them so all suffering souls would forgive and let go of the tragic incidents happened in
those days. Once their minds were relieved, their souls could be free and move on to their new realm.
