:namaste:
Aflame with the fire of passion, the fire of aversion, the fire of delusion.
Aflame, with birth, aging & death, with sorrows, lamentations, pains, distresses, & despairs ......

Seeing thus, the disciple of the Noble One grows disenchanted. SN 35.28

If you are open to considering Burmese monasteries in Thailand, then there is Wat Tha Ma O in Lampang Province. The new abbot there, Sayadaw Gandhasāra, is a disciple of Mahasi Sayadaw who is fluent in English and teaches the samatha-vipassanā system outlined in Mahasi’s Brahmavihāra Dhamma, i.e., insight development based upon mettā jhāna.
    ...and this thought arose in the mind of the Blessed One:
    “Who lives without reverence lives miserably.”
    Uruvela Sutta, A.ii.20

    It were endless to dispute upon everything that is disputable.
