The funeral will be a huge event. Forest Monastery Abbot's from all around the world, bhikkhus, lay people .... probably hundreds of thousands of people.
He was the last well known direct disciple of Tan Ajahn Mun, and has been the seniormost teacher of the Forest tradition in the lineage of Tan Ajahn Mun for the last 15 years, his books ''Ven. Acariya Mun - A Spiritual Biography" and ''Patipada" have made the Forest Tradition widely known in Thailand and internationally.
He commands enormous respect for his flawless practice and exalted spiritual attainment, and his Dhamma teachings for free distribution have found an enthusiastic audience among meditators all over the world.
Along with the reverence due to such a great teacher, there will, I'm sure, be the usual photos of lights, globes in the sky and talk of crystallised relics after the cremation.
