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.
"Whenever we feel that we are definitely right, so much so that we refuse to open up to anything or anybody else, right there we are wrong. It becomes wrong view. When suffering arises, where does it arise from? The cause is wrong view, the fruit of that being suffering. If it was right view it wouldn't cause suffering." - Ajahn Chah
"Remember you dont meditate to get anything, but to get rid of things. We do it, not with desire, but with letting go. If you want anything, you wont find it." - Ajahn Chah
