A new associated monastery in the Ajahn Chah tradition has been started in Brazil. It is the first of its kind in South America and was established with the encouragement and blessing of Luang Por Liem, the present abbot of Ajahn Chah’s original monastery, Wat Pah Pong in Ubon province, Thailand. Luang Por Liem visited Suddhavāri in 2017 and considered the place suitable for a forest monastery, leaving Ajahn Mudito as the of leader of the project.

Suddhavāri Monastery also has the blessing of elders of the Forest Sangha from around the world.
