Even though the path was dark, Boonrod otter followed Ta Luang Muan cutely. and when passing through houses with dogs Each dog comes out to play. and familiarly greeted the otter Boonrawd Not a single otter gave a threatening, unfriendly bark to Boonrawd.

When Ta Luang Moan went to the house of the attendant who was waiting to give alms to monks Otter Boonrawd will make a sound similar to calling people who prepare food for alms giving to know that The monks had arrived before coming out to offer food to monks. and when Ta Luang prayed for blessing Otter Boonrod lies down and waits for Ta Luang Moan to finish his blessing and walks on to the next house. And the behavior is like this in every house where Ta Luang Mass receives alms.

As for those who come to wait for the alms-giving, when the alms-giving is over, they will greet Boonrawd otter like you used to. Just like the dogs of each house will come to greet and invite each other to play.

While the reporters who had followed Ta Luang Moan to receive alms since leaving the temple observed the behavior of the otter Boonrod. It was found that since leaving the temple before leaving, he stopped by to play in the water once, after that he continued to follow the monks. will stop by to receive alms from the house with the monks

or if any house has a dog but does not offer alms But in the dog house The Boonrod otter stopped to greet and play with the dogs for a while before running after the monks without taking commands. and if there is a car traveling around, will smartly avoid the car on the side of the road

And before returning to the temple, he would stop for a swim in the irrigation canal. Ta Luang Moan will walk along San Khlong Chonprathan Road. Boonrod otter will swim in the irrigation canal.

Until the last house, there will be people waiting to give alms to monks. Nak Boonrawd will go up to the house where the owner of the house is already waiting before going straight into the kitchen. Standing in front of the refrigerator for the owner of the house to open the refrigerator to ask for food intelligently, this is the last house before returning to the temple.

He is the leader of the chicken gang in the temple and is a friend to all the dogs in the sub-district.

People in the villages know each other well. When the monks went out for alms every day, some of them, some of them, some of them, the monks disappeared and did not go for alms. Khun Yom didn’t ask for a monk. but miss otter Boonrod Ask for Boonrod otter instead.

“As for the reason why the Boonrawd otter behaved like this Understand that in Dharma it must be a matter of old karma. and he used to have the mental state to stay with the temple and the monks His mind is therefore tied to the temple here, so his behavior is like this.”

While Phra Muan Kutacitto said that he helped Otter Boonrod while going for alms round. Otter Boonrod’s mother was being carried and was chased by a dog. He left Boonrod and was caught by a dog. At that time, he had not yet opened his eyes. Then put it in a satchel and bring it to the temple. raised without imprisonment or anything Predicted that one day he would go because he was a wild animal.

But it turns out that it’s been over a year since he hasn’t gone anywhere. Never trained anything for him, but his behavior instead followed all the monks to the alms round. depending on his mood Some days I go with that picture, sometimes it’s this picture. The first time I was shocked to see it in the middle of the road. afraid that the dog will chase and bite but not He is friendly with all the village dogs.

“Personally, I still think that it might be my own karma. Once, as a layman, he killed an otter. That otter may come back to me today. must take care of each other As for the food he eats, he buys fish balls once a week to eat,” Pramual said.
