Ajahn Liem to Visit Abhayagiri

Ajahn Liem to Visit Abhayagiri

Ajahn Liem, the abbot of Wat Nong Pah Pong and successor to Ajahn Chah, will be visiting four North American monasteries in the Ajahn Chah tradition from June 19 to July 16. Ajahn Jundee, abbot of Wat Pah Ampawan, and two other monks will accompany Ajahn Liem. After visiting Tisarana Buddhist Monastery, Temple Forest Monastery, and Pacific Hermitage, they plan to arrive at Abhayagiri in the early evening on July 6. We will ask Ajahn Liem to give the 7:30 pm evening talk on Saturday, July 11. He will be away from Abhayagiri on July 9. Ajahn Liem’s last public event in California will be a talk after the meal at Wat Buddhanusorn in Fremont on July 12.

Abhayagiri’s guest accommodations are completely full for the duration of Ajahn Liem’s visit.
