In the coming month of June, Luang Por Anek will be here in Singapore for a short Dhamma Tour together with Ajahn Preechar, Ajahn Somjit, Ajahn Dton, Ajahn Bunkhanong, Ajahn Cagino, Ajahn Tanee and Phra Phamornpol.
For detailed information regarding about his tour schedule, do refer to the poster below for clarification.
Here is a short excerpt about Luang Por Anek:
Luang Por Anek Yasadinno, the abbot of Wat Pah Sai Ngam was born in 1946 in Det Udom District, Ubon province, Thailand. Luang Por Anek received ordination as a Buddhist monk on June 5, 1967 at his local village monastery. In 1968, he moved to Wat Nong Pah Pong and practiced under the tutelage of Luang Por Chah Subhaddo. After training himself for many years under the guidance of Luang Por Chah, he was eventually entrusted with the position of abbot of Wat Pah Sai Ngam which he built from ground up and where he has lived from its very first day until now. Since 1991, Luang Por Anek has established many social welfare projects in Thailand. Some of their projects include: buffalo and cow welfare fund; community welfare Dhamma Compassion fund and Sangha medical fund.
There will only be one meal for the venerables. Please arrive at the respective location by 8.15am to prepare your food offerings. If you are bringing fruits, please cut them before offering.
