Ordination Pictures

Postby Bhikkhu Pesala » Wed Mar 14, 2012 9:33 pm

I just added some high resolution pictures to my Photo Gallery. They use WebP (Weppy) format to save bandwidth. If your browser doesn't support them, IrfanView 4.32 does. That's what I used to save them.

Can you identify some of the monks for me? I knew the Lao monk standing between Ajahn Chah and Ajahn Santacitto quite well as he practised in Mahāsī Yeikthā for some time when I was there, but it was too long ago now and his name escapes me.

I don't know the bhikkhu to Ajahn Sucitto's left and to my right.

A great photo, Bhante.
Thank you for sharing.
I am sorry I cannot help you with names.
kind regards,

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

I think the Bhikku to Ajahn Sucitto's left was Called "Ven Aranyapho". He would have disrobed many moons ago.
