The Wisdom of Relinquishment – Luang Por Jundee

This is Ajahn Thaniyo’s English translation of Luang Por Jundee’s talk offered on Saturday, June 20. LP Jundee explains that happiness does not come from gain or accumulation but arises from learning how to use relinquishment, reflection on the three characteristics, and the concept of mynair (uncertainty).… Read the rest

Upcoming Luang Por Liem Visit, June 19 to 24, 2015

This coming week, June 19 to 24, Luang Por Liem, Luang Por Jundee, Ajahn Seyk, and Ajahn Thaniyo will be visiting Tisarana Monastery.

Luang Por Liem (who has been monk for more than 50 years) is the abbot of Ajahn Chah’s main monastery in Thailand, Wat Nong Pah Pong and was the monk who succeeded Ajahn Chah more than 25 years ago. Luang Por Liem is a highly respected elder and central figure in our tradition. He is known for his wisdom, humility, and quiet, even temperament. Over the past two decades Luang Por has been the preceptor for many monks and a source of guidance and inspiration for our widespread communities in Thailand and abroad. As well as a gifted teacher, he is also an accomplished craftsman and has been instrumental in the planning and building of many Dhamma Halls in our branch monasteries.

Luang Por Jundee has been a monk for 40 years and was ordained with Ajahn Chah just after Luang Por Viradhammo. He is presently the abbot of Wat Pah Ampahwan, a beautiful monastery in Chonburi province.

We are very happy to welcome Luang Por Liem and Luang Por Jundee to Tisarana this coming week. It is a great honour to our community.… Read the rest

2015: Endings and Beginnings

As we enter a budding spring time at Tisarana after the ending of our winter retreat, many changes have been brought to the fore.

The Saturday Afternoon Program Resumes Beginning at 1:00 pm.

The first Saturday of April brought many old friends back to the monastery and we would like to announce a small change in schedule. A request was made from lay supporters to have the Saturday program begin at 1:00 pm instead of 2:00 pm due to the long wait for the practice session to begin after the meal and to allow those from further distances to return home sooner rather than later.

The Next Work Bee on Saturday, May 9

We plan to hold a work bee to initiate planting trees at the monastery. Both Noi and Aka are offering their time to help with further landscaping and will be leading a tree planting day on Saturday, May 9. The work will begin around 9:00 am and end around 4:00 pm. After the work is finished Luang Por Viradhammo will have an early tea with anyone who is interested in speaking with him. This is in lieu of the regular Saturday sit and talk that we will forgo on May 9th.… Read the rest
