(Event)
Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, France,

About the Monestry: A Theravada Buddhist monastery named "Amaravati" is situated at the eastern end of the Chiltern Hills in the south-east of England, near the Hertfordshire village of Great Gaddesden. Inspired by the Thai Forest Tradition and the teachings of the late Ajahn Chah, the monastery was established in 1980. With the intention of realization of Nibbana, freedom from all mental suffering, and providing a place of practice for monastics in the Forest Tradition, The Monestry was established. The monastery is open for those who want to develop mindfulness, to explore spiritual teachings, and to contribute to the community. The community consists of monks, nuns, along with a number of full-time lay residents. There are between twenty to thirty monks and nuns in the residence, living a very contemplative, celibate, mendicant life according to the monastic training rules. Also, the community includes angarikas, who wears white and observe the Eight Precepts, and they make a commitment for a year to train within the monastic community. Formally Amaravati was opened in 1985 after the site was purchased by English Sangha Trust from Bedfordshire County Council. Now on the occasion of moon observance days, the community will start with the meditation at 7.30 p.m in the temple. which is followed by a Dhamma talk by one of the monastics and meditation vigil until the midnight. For those who will not be able to attend the talk can watch the Dhamma talk which will be recorded and published on their video channel and audio library/podcasts. For a digital calendar with the observance days, please go to the Forest Sangha website. So, Be with us...!
