Wat Nong Pah Pong
Wat Nong Pah Pong is a Buddhist forest monastery located in the province of Ubon Rachathani, in the North-East of Thailand. It was established by Venerable Ajahn Chah Subhaddo in 1954 so that monks, nuns and laypeople would have a place to study and practice the Teachings of the Buddha under Ajahn Chah's guidance. It aims at helping practitioners realize the end of suffering, and in its teachings focuses on methods such as being content with little, letting go, and putting forth right effort, so that students might attain the Path and the Fruit of practice, and realize Nibbana. It teaches and guides its monks and novices to acquire good habits of body and mind through following and practicing the Dhamma and Vinaya (Buddhist Teachings and Monastic Discipline). This will help cultivate deep internal realizations and lead to a strengthening of the presence of the Teachings of the Buddha in the world, benefitting current and future generations of both Thai and international practitioners.
