The MonkforaMonth project has now finished. The Blood Foundation which started it had personal problems with myself and the other foreign monk
here at our temple, Phra Chuntawongso. Since it changed to a
free, donation based thing the Blood Foundation were not making any funding from it but still had it as a
major draw for
guests to join their other activities.
The program itself of having visitors stay at the temple and be taught the Dhamma and Vipassana meditation, whilst living in the community, is still active, and the possibility to ordain as a
novice for a
short time is also available.

We have had enquiries about monk
ordination which hasn't happened yet, but would require a
long stay of several months before we could assess the suitability and determination of the applicant.
Both Phra Chuntawongso and myself are also on Facebook... https://www.facebook.com/fabian.blandford
