Dear friends of meditation and the Sonnenthal, We are happy to inform you that we have been accommodating meditators again since Friday. However, the hygiene requirements currently only allow a slightly smaller number of participants, so unfortunately, we cannot give a place to everyone who wants to come. The last two months have flown by and a lot has happened: We were given a small used garden shed, which we have almost completely rebuilt in the meantime. Another small area that somewhat alleviates our lack of space. We are still broadcasting our evening chanting once a week via zoom, usually
The daily evening chanting in our center is available to watch online under the following links. 12. July 2020 https://youtu.be/HAM_MgxUXWw 5.

Dear Friends in Dhamma, Lisa and I have now arrived in Chomtong. This afternoon the water which has been blessed by the King of Thailand will be brought to the temple, expressing the Royal Family`s respect for Ajahn Tong. Subsequently, there will be a chanting ceremony at the temple.Throughout the next few days, several chanting sessions from the Abhidhamma will follow.
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.
