“Wanchai, occupy dharma whole of his heart.” (Praised by teacher, Luang ta maha Bua.)
Wat Sangkho Yana Visutti Sophon (Wat Phu Sangkho, Wat Pa Sangkaram), or the people called “Wat Soeng Koeng” is a peaceful temple for practicing strictly. Forest temple is an ideal place for accelerating the prayer seriously. Venerable Wanchai Vijitto is the president.
There will be evening prayers on Wednesdays and Saturdays between the monks and the worshipers who stay at the temple. The prayer starts at 5 pm in only Pali for 1 hour, then rest for about 15 minutes, and meditate together. Meditation is started with the opening of the sermon tape of Luang ta maha Bua for about 1 hour, then meditate until 8 pm, and go back to their cubicle.
How to meditate?
There is only one meal and no electricity. The practitioners must write a letter to the master first. Jongkrom and depends on how you’ve practice.
