ลูกศิษย์แจงมีมติไม่ให้เจ้าหน้าที่เข้าพื้นที่เอง – ไม่เกี่ยวกับหลวงพ่อทัตตชีโว
February 22, 2017, 17.20 hrs.
Most Venerable Dattajeevo provided an explanation to the Provincial Ecclesiastical Chief and the DSI Deputy Chief, Police Major-General Suriya Singhakamol regarding the devotees’
concerns. This led the devotees to form a consensus that state officials should not be permittedto enter and search the temple compound, due to a lack of trust arising from the following
1. In regards to the golden statue of Luang Pu Wat Paknam, HM King Rama X traveled to
Wat Phra Dhammakaya to be the honorary guest for the casting ceremony held in 1994
(2537 B.E.). The purity of the gold is now being questioned.
2. When the sima-stones were placed for the Main Chapel, the HRH King Rama IX
requested HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sririndhorn and HRH Princess Chulabhorn to
represent him in the consecration ceremony. Yet, the temple has been accused of not
obtaining permission for its construction.
3. Over 300 cases were filed within a two-week span. This is certainly a form of bullying.
Deputy Police Chief Srivara Ransibrahmanakul also stated in an interview that many
more cases will follow.
4. Wat Phra Dhammakaya was built through strong faith and hard earned money of millions
of devotees, making it rightly their temple. But state officials announced that devotees
must vacate the premise, and if they stayed, water, electricity, and food supplies would
be cut off, with the possibility that charges could be filed against them. This is
tantamount to an eviction of temple owners from their own property even though they
weren’t even obstructing public roads.
5. The ordination of bhikkhus or Buddhist monks produces heirs for the Buddhist religion,
and the development of one monk into a true monk is not a simple matter. To be able to
develop 2,000 monks takes an even greater amount of time. Yet these monks are being
accused of being false monks, and there are threats they will be forcibly defrocked.
Devotees refuse to let this happen.
6. With Article 44 invoked, for three days from February 16-18 2017, state officials
searched every room on every floor in every structure within the temple grounds, took
over six gates, sealed 15 buildings with tamper indication tape, with some structures
searched as many as three times. DSI officials concluded their search with documentation indicating that the person of interest and violations were not found. This
meant that their search had concluded, but yet, they asked to conduct another search
with the reason that they've not yet searched every structure.
As a result of the actions performed by state officials listed above, the devotees are displeased
and no longer trust the actions of state officials from this point forward.
As outlined above, Most Ven. Dattajeevo informed the Provincial Ecclesiastical Chief and the
DSI Deputy Chief of the reasons temple devotees are not at ease and lack confidence in state
officials. Therefore, the accusations that Most Ven. Dattajeevo refuses to cooperate are
unfounded. The reasons outlined above, which he had given, are the reasons and decisions
made solely by the devotees.
The truth is, DSI has exercised its powers beyond the scope of the law. During negotiations,
DSI stated their objective [for the search warrant] was to find Venerable Dhammajayo, but
instead, they ordered monks and devotees to vacate the temple. They claimed that devotees
and monks with monastic identification cards are permitted to stay, but this is also untrue, as
their real intention is to seize the temple, not search for Ven. Dhammajayo. DSI already knew
that Ven. Dhammajayo was not inside the temple. Therefore, their claim that his surrender
would bring this situation to an end is also untrue. It was merely an excuse to seize the temple
and to defrock all of the monks. Were they just following an order? DSI claimed that everybody
in Thailand must know. We’d like to ask, know about what? DSI already came and searched
every corner of the temple, but did not find Ven. Dhammajayo. They discovered empty buildings
instead, with nothing of value, contrary to their expectations. This is because Wat Phra
Dhammakaya does not have any hidden treasures, and our monks and novices lead a simple
life, absent of lavishness. They are determined to continue their search until they find
something. And when the temple asserts there are no hidden treasures, they refuse to believe
it. Instead, they accused monks and devotees of wrongdoing. These are the main reasons
devotees no longer have trust and confidence in the actions of state officials.
