Local Ceremony: Sueb Chata Muang
June 2nd, 2019
@ Chiang Mai’s city corners and gates.
The Sueb Chata Muang Ceremony is an ancestral Lanna event to honour the guardians spirits of Chiang Mai city. Every year, in May or June, masters of the city calculate the auspicious date for this important merit-making ceremony.
Northern people have a belief that Chiang Mai city has a fate, as well as the people inhabiting it. The Sueb Chata is a ceremony asking the spirits of the city to help dispel all the bad luck on Chiang Mai and also to bless and prolong the life of the city.
According to the tradition, the ceremony is held at 10 sacred sites believed to be inhabited by ancestral spirits who guard the city. These sites are the city’s centre (Three Kings Monument), the four main corners of the city and the five main gates.
On the day of the ceremony, locals will join in one of the 10 different spots. They will make a donation and then pull down a white threads from the tent and twine them around their heads. Monks will recite the five precepts, chant sacred phrases, and read Dharma teaching. At the end of the ceremony, they will sprinkle holy water on the believers.
Chiang Mai people have a very deep respect for the ancestral spirits of the city and every year this ceremony gives them the opportunity to pay respect and not forget traditions. This year, the Sued Chata Muang Ceremony will be held on June 2nd.
