Monasteries In Thailand English Speakers Can Ordain

Postby 333 » Tue Aug 18, 2015 2:22 am

Here is a list of monasteries foreigners can ordain in Thailand:

Wat sanghathan meditation center - http://www.vimokkha.com/watsanghathaneng.2.htm
Wat Maha that
Wat bovornives vihara
Wat asokaram
Sunnataram forest monastery
Wat pah nanachat
Suan mokkh
Wat umong
(All of which, aside from sanghathan, can be researched here http://www.kammatthana.com/a_guide_to_b ... eries_.htm - site is fairly out of date however )
Wat sri boon ruang - http://www.templeretreatthailand.com/fr ... tions.html
Wat boonyawad? (Waiting for an answer, if English speakers can ordain here) http://watboonyawad.blogspot.com http://www.watboonyawad.com/new/

The monasteries I find most pleasing are : wat umong, sunnataram forest monastery, wat sri boon ruang, and wat asokaram. I have heard quite a bit of negative feedback about wpn, but it is by far the highest on the list by means of convenience.

This exists as a comment in another thread, but it can be easily overlooked by the mass of other comments. I wanted to make this information more accessible and helpful to people with the noble aspiration. Much metta. :heart:

I hope this is of help to as many people as possible - I wish everyone the very best. :anjali:

I think it is a great idea for people to comment other monasteries an English speaker can ordain; be it Thailand, or elsewhere! Let's make this thread a great resource for future bhikkhus. Thank you!

Na uyana forest monastery, Sri Lanka.

Pa Auk Forest Monastery, Myanmar. http://www.paaukforestmonastery.org/residence_apply.htm

These are two popular and successful, beautiful forest monasteries. Pa Auk the more popular of the two, with residents fluctuating between 1 and 2 thousand.

Thank you for posting this list. It is sometimes difficult to find the names of local Thai monasteries because many do not have an Internet presence.
May the blessings of the Buddha, the Dhamma, and the Sangha always be firmly established in your hearts.

I have heard that some people have been ordaining with Ajarn Suchart at Wat Yan, a disciple of Luang Dta Maha Bua who speaks fluent English.

Which one of this can ordain me fast and easy for few days
Even if the flesh & blood in my body dry up, leaving just the skin, tendons, & bones, I will use all my human firmness, human persistence and human striving. There will be no relaxing my persistence until I am the first of my generation to attain full awakening in this lifetime. ed. AN 2.5
