March 19, 2017

Temporary Occupancy for Reception Hall; Phase 4 to Begin We are happy to announce that on Tuesday, March 14th, we called for an inspection of the Reception Hall building. The county inspector passed the building and gave us a temporary occupancy permit. This permit allows us to start using the building immediately.There are still a few days worth of cabinetry, tiling, and carpentry work, as well as the elevator to be approved. Hopefully, this will be completed within the next couple of weeks. Once the community ends our winter retreat we will move into the building and start using it.

Ajahn Piak to visit Abhayagiri in April
February 10, 2017

Ajahn Piak, a Thai disciple of Ajahn Chah and close friend of Ajahn Dtun and Ajahn Anan, will be visiting Abhayagiri for a week in April. We expect him to arrive the evening of April 19 and depart early in the morning on April 26. We plan to invite Ajahn Piak to give the Saturday talk on April 22 and the Wan Phra talk on April 25. Ajahn Piak will be traveling with a group of five monks including his long-time student Ajahn Issara and has invited Ajahn Siripañño to translate for him. Tan Kovilo, who ordained at Abhayagiri in 2010, has spent much of the last two years living at Ajahn Piak's monastery and will likely join Ajahn Piak's group. We expect he will be willing to speak informally with people and answer our questions at tea time. Be...

Winter Retreat 2017

During these three months there will be no overnight guests accepted. (For overnight visits after the retreat please contact the monastery after April 1, 2017.) However, day visitors and those wishing to visit the monastery to participate in the meal offering or bring offerings of requisites at meal time are still welcome. It should be noted, however, that the community is practicing noble silence, and talking and conversations with the monastics and retreat crew are very lim...

Is Nature Fair
Ajahn Amaro

The Buddha gave a small collection of teachings called the ‘Five Subjects for Frequent Recollection’ (A 5.57). The first of these is: ‘I am of the nature to age.’ The second is: ‘I am of the nature to sicken.’ The third is: ‘I am of the nature to die.’ The fourth is: ‘All that is mine, beloved and pleasing, will become otherwise, will become separated from me’; and the fifth is: ‘I am the owner of my karma, heir to my karma, born of my karma, related to my karma, abide supported by my karma; whatever karma I shall do, for good or for ill, of that I will be the heir.’ Th...
