Tuk Baht - Dhamma Wheel
A Buddhist discussion forum on the Dhamma of the Theravāda
I am seeking knowledge of where I can attain printed information on "tuk baht". I frequent a Lao/Isaan temple and a new American visitor asked where one can find the written definition of "tuk baht". I am at a loss of where to send her for such information that is written. Any help on here? Chok dee.
I think the word may be ตักบาตร (dtak bhat) which is to offer food into a monks bowl. ตัก (dtak) means to scoop out/serve food/liquid with a large spoon/ladle. A shortening of dtak khao sai baht (scoop rice into the monks bowl)?
