Dear friends in Dhamma,
our highly respected teacher – Most Venerable Phra Prom Mongkol Vi. (Venerable Phra Ajahn Tong Sirimangalo) – has left this world yesterday December 12th, 2019 at the age of 96 years.
Yesterday morning he was still receiving a big group of international meditators from Khun Thanat and Khun Kat. Nobody expected that not long after he would already have left us.
We are grateful for all the years of teaching and tireless support that Venerable Ajahn Tong has shared so generously with so many people!

We try to put the informations on our website.
Yours in the Dhamma

“Arjan Thong Passed away “
Arjan passed away you might feeling lose, but we are not necessarily to think that way. At the moment we actually have to apply the dharma that Ajarn been taught us strongly. Acknowledging more do not fall into restlessness or follow your emotions.
We all should love each other even more. Take care and do your duty even better than before to show the love the gratitude that we have toward Arjan.
No argument in each other. we need to love each other as well as we all love Arjan, everyone should have gratitude and unite and help what you can.
As well as be happy to service all the monk and ray people who going to come here to pay respect to Arjan.
