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.
"Right effort is effort with wisdom. Because where there is wisdom, there is interest. The desire to know something is wisdom at work. Being mindful is not difficult. But it’s difficult to be continuously aware. For that you need right effort. But it does not require a great deal of energy. It’s relaxed perseverance in reminding yourself to be aware. When you are aware, wisdom unfolds naturally, and there is still more interest." - Sayadaw U Tejaniya
