Wat Pa Ratanawan

Postby Guy » Mon Nov 07, 2011 6:04 am

Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone knows:

1) Is Ajahn Nyanadhammo still the abbot of Wat Pa Ratanawan?

2) What would I have to do to stay there? Do I need to have permission first?

3) Any other general advice?

Metta,

Guy
Four types of letting go:

1) Giving; expecting nothing back in return
2) Throwing things away
3) Contentment; wanting to be here, not wanting to be anywhere else
4) "Teflon Mind"; having a mind which doesn't accumulate things

I'm reactivating this thread.

I'd like to write Luang Por Nyanadhammo and therefore I need to know where he is currently residing at. Thank you!

Yes, Ajahn Nyanadhammo is the abbot at Wat Pa Ratanawan, Ampher Wang Nam Khiow, Jangwat Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand.
They might allow a few lay guests to stay there, but the accommodation is quite limited and one should write to them first or just pop in to visit. The abbot usually receives visitors in the Sala in the afternoon (after 2 pm).

And again, thank you Bhante for being so helpful!!! :anjali:

I don't want to travel there, at least not yet. He used to be the abbot at Wat Pah Nanachat when I've practiced the Anagarika Precepts there and right now I want to thank certain teachers that I met in this lifetime and pay my respects by writing them. So it's great to know where this letter has to travel to. :)

Hi. I am going to spend holidays at Wang Nam Khiao, leaving tomorrow, and I would like to take the opportunity to visit Wat Pah Ratanawan.

Anyone knows if this map is correct?

When looking the satellite picture, there seems to be nothing at the Blue spot (I made a search for วัดป่ารัตนวัน)

Thank You

Yes, the map should be correct. The lake at Wat Pah Ratanawan does not appear so clearly but the place must be correct on the map.

Hi,

My folks (Jin Lee and family) and 2 friends from Wat Pa Ban Tat will be visiting the senior monks in Wat Pa Ratanawan. We are from Melbourne and my sister, Visakha Lee would particularly like to offer dana to Ajahn Khemmanando and the senior monks. We a group of 8 driving from Udon Thani down to Bangkok. We have people who can speak Thai. I've got the instructions to get there but I'm wondering if anyone can help us with local accomodation/hotel/motel nearby so that we can sybat on the 16Dec2014. Arriving Wang Nam Khiao District Nakhon Ratchasima on the 15Dec2014. Thank you kindly.
