Description
In the past, it was not easy for a country to have another country under its colonization. They must unavoidably fight in war leading to losses of both their people and resources. Nonetheless, territories that faced colonization often cooperated and protected their land. At least, two heads are better than one.
During the reign of King Maha Chakkraphat of the Ayutthaya Kingdom, there was a war with Burma. At that time, Burma was so powerful that King Chaiyachetthathirat of Si Sattana Kanahut Kingdom (Vientaine, Laos at present) negotiated to be an alliance to fight against Burma, promised not to violate each other’s territory and built a stupa as a witness that is Phra That Si Song Rak.
Phra That Si Song Rak has no monks living inside but it is under the governance of Wat Phon Chai. It was intentionally built as Uthesik Chedi (Chedi of Rememberance) to dedicate it to Buddhism. Its base is square shape with 12-indented corners. The bell stupa has a square lotus shape. There is a celebration for Phra That Si Sok Rak on the 15th day of the waxing moon of the 6th month of the lunar month of every year. Lao people in Dan Sai will make Tom Phueng and Thian Wian Hua as offerings to Phra That Si Sok Rak for auspiciousness. The front of Phra That Si Sok Rak is a pavilion that enshrines the old Buddha images for people to worship. The nearby area is the location for the stone inscription when Somdet Phra Srinagarindra Boromarajajonani came to pay respect to Phra That Si Song Rak at 15.30 on Tuesday 16th March 1971. Next to each other is the stone inscription of Phra That Si Song Rak Construction History. People who go up to worship Phra That Si Song Rak usually walk clockwise 3 times while praying for propitiousness.
Those who worship Phra That Si Song Rak have the mantra of Phra That Si Song Rak by chanting Homage to the Buddha 3 times followed with “Nakhalo-ke Thewalo-ke Chomphu-thi-pe Tawa-ting-se Chin-na-tha-tuyo Arahanta Namami”. There are a few rules for going up to worship the stupa. For instance, do not use red flowers for offerings and do not wear red clothing. This is because Phra That Si Sok Rak was built from friendship. Red items are not appropriate for paying respect since red color designates blood and violence. To travel by car, drive from the city along Highway No. 203, Loei-Phu Ruea Route. Then, change to Highway No. 2013 for about 15 kilometers. When you arrive in Dan Sai District, keep right to Road No. 2113 for about 1 kilometer. The stupa is open daily for people to worship from 06.00-18.00.
