need a little help reaching wat pah nanachat

Postby uragamuni » Wed Jan 06, 2010 11:48 am

Hi! First a little context: after much planning and preparation some days ago I sent a letter to the Guest Monk of Wat Pah Nanachat asking to be able to visit them, as instructed in their website. Given how unreliable is our national postal service I decided to send it by FedEx... So far so good.

The problem is: after more than three weeks FedEx has so far failed to deliver the envelope...

They first told me that there wasn't anybody to receive it in the specified address (the one shown in the WPN website). Can that be true...? Anyway, they asked me a phone number to program the delivery and I gave them the one that I found in the website http://www.retreat-infos.de: 045-4000-15, but... they now say that the phone number is incorrect and are asking me a new one.

Sooo: does anybody know the phone number I should give FedEx? Is there any additional directions I should give them?

Thanks in advance,
Mario

Mario,

Planning and preparation...for what?...if you want to stay at WPN, just get yourself a visa and go...if you're earnest, and convey that earnestness to them, they won't turn you away...

I have the same contact information as you so am unable to offer an alternative other than the above...

Wishing you well...

Try contacting one of the forest sangha monestaries


He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

if you can't get hold of anyone let me know I have a contact who is at amaravati, on facebook!

possibly your best bet would be to try the Forest Hermitage http://foresthermitage.org.uk/ or one of the Lay organisations who are based at the monasteries, possibly ALBA
Amaravati Lay Buddhist Association.

Hello Bhante and Manapa,

Certainly Dhammagiri in Brisbane, which is a WPP branch monastery is not taking these months as Vassa. We're sweltering in summer.
