Info on Wat Dtao Dum - Ajahn Siripanno

Postby suriyopama » Sat Dec 21, 2013 1:22 am

Dear all,

I would like to know if some of you have been at Wat Dtao Dum, and if Ajahn Siripanno can be met there.

I have located Wat Dtao Dum on Google maps, in Sai Yoi National Park, close the Burma border:
https://maps.google.com.my/maps?hl=en&ie=UTF8&ll=14.272556,98.733133&spn=0.003405,0.004206&t=h&z=18&source=embed

It is embedded into the forest, perhaps only accessible with the appropriate vehicle. I could go to Kanchanaburi with my car, but I don´t know the most convenient way to go from there to the forest monastery.

Thank You


I found that map here:

I've found more information.

If I want to go there, I will have to make a friend in some Off-Road Four-Wheel Driver Club. That is a real forest! :D

Anyway, I will try to use my radar to find if Ajahn Siripanno ever comes to Bangkok.

A recent WPN Publication, "Forest Path" had a chapter dedicated to Wat Dtao Dam. It seems a group of supporters bring in food regularly which is then cooked by a local workers at the monastery. There is no alms round as there are no villages nearby. The closest village is called Tung Ma Sa Yo. The monks from WPN usually come on tudong to this monastery during the hot season (April?), otherwise just a few monks would be here.

Thank you for the information on the document.

That is a very interesting story. Those monks are doing a great job protecting the land! They are the protecting angels of that forest. :namaste:
