The Celebration of the 100th Birthday Anniversary of
His Holiness Somdet Phra Nyanasamvara the Supreme Patriarch of Thailand


The Emblem for The Celebration of the 100th Birthday Anniversary of
His Holiness Somdet Phra Nyanasamvara the Supreme Patriarch of Thailand

The cypher of "Nya-Sa-Sa" is an acronym for his Holiness Somdet Phra Nyanasamvara Somdet Phra Sangharaja Sakalamahasanghaparinayaka (the Supreme Patriarch of Thailand). The later "Nya" in blue (indigo) signifies his birth day i.e Friday. The latter "Sa" in white signifies his quality of exceptional purity which brings lustrous auspiciousness into Buddhism. The letter "Sa" in yellow signifies his position of Sakalamahasanghaparinayaka, the Supreme Patriarch of the Buddhist Sangha.

The cypher of "Nya-Sa-Sa" is under the white three-tiered umbrella, symbol of Ecclesiastical decoration for the Supreme Patriarch. The acronym name and umbrella are inside the mandala radius i.e. the sacred radios which means His Holiness Somdet Phra Nyanasamvara. the Supreme Patriarch is free from all defilements who has descended from the line of Buddha. There is a picture of Airavata elephant raising his tusks to raise up the manadala which signifies enthronement as the Supreme Patriarch of the city of Ratanakosind and also means His Holiness was born in the lineage of Gajavatra (an elephant who takes religious vows.)

Under the picture of Airavata elephant there is a great auspicious number of 100 which signifies his birthday, the longest reigning Supreme Patriarch than any other Supreme Patriarch of the past. At the lower end there is a vermilion ribbon bow (pink) with golden borders ending each end with golden panicles. Inside the ribbon there are words written in gold saying "The celebration of 3rd October 2556(2013)". At the right curling ribbon of the emblem it is written 2456(1913), His Holiness birth year. At the left curling ribbon of the emblem it is written "The celebration of the 100th birthday anniversary Buddhist Era 2556(2013)"
