Temple Forest Monastery
In July 2014 Ajahn Jayanto and Ajahn Anando, two monks from Amaravati Buddhist Monastery, as well as Tan Saddhammo, a monk from Wat Pah Nanachat, took up residence on part of a property in Temple, NH which has subsequently been purchased by supporters and offered as a site for a monastery in the tradition of Ajahn Chah and Ajahn Sumedho.
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 arose to purchase a beautiful, secluded, yet accessible property eminently suitable for a forest monastery in Temple, New Hampshire (near Peterborough).
