Temporary Occupancy for Reception Hall; Phase 4 to Begin
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. We still have a significant amount of work to do with regard to finishing the entire project: this work will be done in Phase Four of the project. We need...

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
January 1, 2017

The annual winter retreat begins on January 2, 2017 and lasts for three months, ending on April 1st. During this time, the resident community takes time to engage in more formal meditation practice following a changing schedule of group or individual practice. 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...

Jhana and Wisdom
Ajahn Chandako

Deep samādhi offers an experience of true silence, a profound inner solitude. It frees the mind from the inane babble of thoughts, from the tyranny of chattering opinions. True insight does not arise from reasoning. Certainly, pondering Dhamma by mulling it over in the rock-polishing tumbler of disciplined thought can pave the way to insight with smooth stones, but the pondering eventually becomes an obstacle in itself. The thinking mind is not wisdom. The intellect is incapable of directly experiencing reality. It ha...
