A relic of the Buddha, a single strand of his hair, has been on display in Bangkok for the last few years, a gift on loan to Thai Buddhists from Buddhists in Sri Lanka. On January 9, the hair left Bangkok to go on display in the ancient Siamese capital of Ayutthaya. There was a special, very formal, prayer service for the relic before it traveled upcountry.
