Mission: To do good, to abstain from bad action and purify the mind.
In the year 1978, Phra Thamma Wisutthi Mongkhon (Bua Yanasampanno) or Pra Dharma Visuthi Mongkol (Bua Ñanasampanno) known commonly as Luang ta maha Bua, was informed of the meditation practicing news of venerable Uthai Siridharo, the abbot of Phra Phu Wua cave monastery. Then he always visited him. Early 2006, Phra Thamma Wisutthi Mongkhon was donated an area near Khao Yai to establish a place for practicing Dharma. Luang ta maha Bua so named "Wat Khao Yai Jaroen Dham Yanasampananno". Later renamed the temple to "Wat Khao Yai Yanasampanno" by inviting ven. Uthai Siridharo built the temple in this area for practicing Dharma to monks and people. After that, ven. Uthai Siridharo has come to live and practice at Wat Khao Yai Yanasampanno until now.
In practice, ven. Uthai has been heavy in the Dharma. Hardly mess with anything. Rarely go anywhere.
Time to respect and make merit:
Morning 8.00-9.30 am
Afternoon 2.00-5.00 pm
In case of merit by donation. Write an annotation tag and give him instead of money. Put the money in the envelope or slack in the cabinet. Dress clothes that you can sit, walk, stand and lay comfortably. The dresses are polite, not shorts, not flashy clothes. Ladies, please avoid dresses that are too thin, too tight or too short.
There is only one meal in the morning but you can keep food for eating at 11 o’clock. Normally teachers in Wat Khao Yai eat only one meal and are single asana as the practice of the wild monks. But the temple does not force you to observe eight precepts and you can take two meals before noon or observe five precepts. During Buddhist Lent, ven. Uthai will approximately have sermon and practical instructions daily at 7.30 pm to 9.00 pm. Other times will be personal prayer time.
How to meditate?
Respect for the teacher is very important for wild monk, so all the upright persons who want to listen to the practice of Luang Pu Uthai Sirindhorn. After his permission, there will be some staffs at a small pavilion ‘Sala Noi” suggest the practice during stay at the temple.
