In 1925, when I was 20, my stepmother died. At the time, I was living with relatives in
Bang Len district, Nakhorn Pathom province, so toward the end of February I returned
home to my father and asked him to sponsor my ordination. I arrived with about 160 baht
in my pockets. Soon after my arrival my elder brothers, sisters, brothers-in-law, etc., flocked
around to see me—and to borrow money: to buy water buffaloes, to buy land, to use in
trading. I gave them all they asked for, because I was planning to be ordained. So in the end,
out of my original 160 baht, I was left with 40.
When ordination season arrived, my father made all the necessary arrangements. I was
ordained on the full moon day of the sixth lunar month—Visakha Puja. Altogether, there
were nine of us ordained that day. Of this number, some have since died, some have
disrobed, leaving only two of us still in the monkhood—myself and a friend.
