The Forest Hermitage (วัดป่าสันติธรรม) is a branch of Wat Nong Pah Pong (วัดหนองป่าพง), the late Luang Por Chah’s principal monastery in N. E. Thailand. Set in the Heart of England it is a small peaceful Buddhist hermitage after the tradition of the forest monasteries of North East Thailand and comprises Santidhamma, the original property where the monks live and where occasional events open to the public are held, and Bhavanadhamma, which is for nuns, female devotees and guests. The Buddha-Dhamma Fellowship is the trust responsible for both. The community is led by Ven. Chao Khun Bhavanaviteht (Luang Por Khemadhammo) OBE, whose blog, News & Musings, with our most recent news can be found here.
