A Monastery Takes Shape
During the summer of 2013, two monks of the Ajahn Chah tradition – Ajahn Jayanto and Ven. Caganando – were invited to stay in Boston in order to explore the possibilities for establishing a branch monastery of their community in New England.
Interest and support proved high – and the opportunity has now arisen to purchase a beautiful, secluded, yet accessible property eminently suitable for a forest monastery in Temple, New Hampshire (near Peterborough).
Supporters are presently working towards a purchase by contributing funds in the form of donations or pledges of private loans. In the meantime, the monks plan to return to take up residence on the site in summer 2014 – the owners themselves wish to contribute to the project and have significantly reduced the purchase price as well as allowed us to begin by renting part of the site if funding is not yet sufficient.
