with Ajahn Jayanto
Sunday, September 10, 10am – 4pm
Ajahn Jayanto, abbot of Temple (NH) Forest Monastery, joined the monastic community of Ajahn Sumedho as a postulant at Amaravati Monastery in England in 1989. Taking bhikkhu (monk) ordination at the related Cittaviveka Monastery in 1991, he trained there and at Aruna Ratanagiri Monastery until 1997, at which point he embarked on a period of practice in Thailand and other Asian Buddhist countries. He returned to the UK in 2006, where he lived at Amaravati until moving to Temple in 2014. Since 2009 Ajahn Jayanto has helped to lead the efforts to establish a branch monastery in the Thai Forest Tradition of Ajahn Chah, here in New England, and he now serves as abbot of Temple Forest Monastery.
