Making merit is an integral part of Thai and Buddhist culture. The concept of making merit is similar to karma – “merit” is the positive protective force that accumulates as the result of good deeds, actions or thoughts. This is an important concept in Buddhist ethics, as it brings good and agreeable results, determines the quality of your next life and contributes to a your personal growth and path towards enlightenment. As part of our Amazing Adventure, you have the chance to gain a bonus point by performing good deeds in the city.
There are many people in need all over Bangkok, Thailand, and of course the world. As part of your group challenge you have the chance to perform god deeds in Bangkok. We’re not looking for anything huge – nobody expects you to cure world hunger! But every little thing counts. We encourage everyone to perform god deeds throughout the city, no matter how small they may be. You can help an elderly person cross the street, assist someone in carrying bags, or even give food donations to those in need.
This is a fantastic way to learn more about Thai and Buddhist culture, but also to interact with locals. Thai people are very kind and friendly, and we guarantee that this group challenge will lead to plenty of great memories. When we all lead such busy lives, it’s very easy to get wrapped up in your own problems and forget about others. This bonus point forces you to stop thinking of yourself and to instead focus on thinking of others. This kind of attitude and the performance of good deeds doesn’t only benefit others, but it will benefit your group making you feel fantastic and giving you the chance to contribute to those in need! This activity is great for groups of all sizes and ages – it teaches valuable lessons for personal growth and development.
