- Mega billboards from Knowing Buddha

Megabillboards found from both arrival and departure side on the way to and from Suvanabhumi airport stand tall to renounce the mistreat of Buddha's symbol to the world.Knowing Buddha Foundation (KBO) received great support from Master Acharavadee's Wongsakon's supporters. As they can't be stilled to see Buddha mistreated as decoration either for home, toilet, carpet or in garden. As well as being tattooed on a person feet. This disrespectful act toward Buddha symbol are truly heart broken to all Buddhist. It's time to the world to realise that Buddha is Buddhist Father and treat his symbol with respect.
From this campaign, we see the gradually ceasing from major sellers such as JJ Market and Chiang Mai. Tourist in Thailand received the right knowledge how to treat Buddha Symbol with proper respect but other part of the world still millions of disrespectful act out there.

For those who admire Buddha symbol has to treat with respect such place symbol such painting or statue up above the waist level and must not use as tattoo or merchandise. Buddhist has Buddha's symbol to pay utmost respect and to remind of his teaching not to entertain themselves as decoration items as the world do to this symbol today.

Once the Founder of the KBO said

"You may not have to ask who Buddha is but do ask if Buddha is other religions' prophets, will they treat his image like this?"

Buddha is Buddhist Father.

Respect is common sense.

Please help us "STOP DISRESPECTING BUDDHA" thank you.
