Help Please - Thai temples

Postby GrahamR » Mon Aug 30, 2010 12:38 pm

Hi folks,

It looks like we will be moving to Thailand in November.

My wife has land in Chachoengsao which is near Chonburi. Does anyone know if there is a good temple near there please?

See http://www.buddhanet.info/wbd/province. ... nce_id=560

Also further south in Rayong, there is a branch of Ajahn Chah's monastery called Wat Marp Jan

Many thanks Pilgrim

I'm after a Wat with good teaching I can attend. We go to one of Ajahn Chah's monasteries in the UK (Aramavati) so that sounds good.

Thanks again.

Wat Sorn Thawee is in Chachoengsao. I understand it teaches Mahasi style and the accomodation and environment is a good standard.
“Peace is within oneself to be found in the same place as agitation and suffering. It is not found in a forest or on a hilltop, nor is it given by a teacher. Where you experience suffering, you can also find freedom from suffering. Trying to run away from suffering is actually to run toward it.” ― Ajahn Chah
