As is usual with Buddhist teachings there is no charge for this event. The Little Bangkok Sangha does, however, follow the Buddhist custom of Dana. Dana is a Pali word which translates as generosity. The teachings are offered as an act of generosity and those receiving them can, if they wish, reciprocate by making donations. These go towards the teacher’s costs, which include food, travel and medical expenses. A box for Dana will be provided.
Please follow the map. It is VERY precise. It is easy to find: there are only one or two turns depending on which direction you are coming from.
It is an 11 minute walk from Asoke BTS and even closer to Sukhumvit MRT
Go down Sukhumvit 23 to the first fourway intersection. Turn right, and then turn right again at the end of the road.
Or just ask the motorcycles inside Sukhumvit 23 – they know the way. Tell them ‘Rojana’.
Or if you need more definite pointers:
A few tips:
- Don’t ask locals or taxi drivers the way – they will not know the Rojana Centre, and will send you somewhere else instead. They will all know Sukhumvit 23, so go there and find your own way.
- Follow the map– plenty of landmarks are shown and it is extremely precise!
- In Thai the centre is known as Rojanatam
