Thai forest monks visit Wisdom Park

Venerable monks paid their respects at the shrine dedicated to Venerable Ajahn Chah.

On Tuesday 30 May,  we were honoured to host Luang Por Lai Thipadhammo, Luang Por Sawang Kalyāno, Luang Por Charlie Piyadhammo, Ajahn Dton Dhirapanno and Ajahn Meng Techadhammo at Wisdom Park.  The Venerable Sirs are from Ajahn Chah’s lineage and were on a busy Dhamma tour across Malaysia and Singapore.

The senior forest monks were introduced to the purpose of this educational facility dedicated to learning and practising Buddha-Dhamma, and toured the grounds accompanied by Nalanda members and volunteers.  They were delighted with the holistic facilities and tranquil parks, and expressed their joy over the potential of Wisdom Park as a space for Dhamma practice.

Members and volunteers joyfully receive monks at Wisdom Park.

We are grateful to Venerable Sirs for taking the time to visit Wisdom Park and giving us their blessings to achieve our objectives in developing more Dhamma teachers and leaders.  We wish all Luang Pors and Ajahns good health and strength in carrying out their Dhamma propagation efforts.
