Ajahn Sumedho to visit Nalanda Centre

All are welcome to Ajahn Sumedho's Dhamma teaching at Nalanda Centre on 15 March.

We are very pleased and honoured to welcome Venerable Ajahn Sumedho to Nalanda Centre this weekend!  Ajahn Sumedho is a highly-respected senior monk in the Thai forest tradition.  He was ordained in Thailand in the 1960’s and trained for years with the late Ajahn Chah, being the famous Dhamma Master’s senior-most Western disciple.

Ajahn Sumedho later helped establish and became the first Abbot of Wat Pah Nanachat (the International Forest Monastery) – a facility for the training of (mostly) Western monks in the forest tradition.  He was later invited to England, where he established the Amaravati Monastery in Hertfordshire.  Ajahn Sumedho has since retired as the Abbot of Amaravati and moved to Thailand a few years ago.

This Sunday, Ajahn Sumedho and 3 other forest monks have been invited to receive alms-food and give Dhamma teaching at Nalanda Centre, Sri Serdang.  You may bring along cooked food for offerings and arrive at Nalanda before 9.00am.  We welcome everyone to partake in this auspicious opportunity to meet with and learn from Ajahn Sumedho and his entourage of well-practiced forest monks.  Sadhu!
