This event is free of charge, however in line with welcoming and supporting monastics we do ask for dana (donations) to support our visiting teacher’s expenses
It is in English only
There is no need to book in advance, as there is plenty of room, but please come early so that we are all seated by the time Venerable Cattamalo arrives.
About Ajahn Cattamalo:
Ajahn Cattamalo was born in Germany and ordained in the Wat Nong Pa Pong tradition of the Venerable Ajahn Chah, in N.E. Thailand in 1988. He spent seven years in various monasteries throughout Thailand, practising and studying with different meditation teachers within the Thai forest tradition. He lived at Bodhinyana Monastery in Perth, Australia for 13 years and for the last five years he was the vice-abbot of the monastery, helping Ajahn Brahmavamso.
As well as his native German, he speaks English and Thai. If you would like to listen to him before 27th December, HERE is link to one of his talks: Pointing to the Mind https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GvtCkXFVcEs
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.
