THE GREEN LION
Buddhism began in Northern India around the year 500 BCE. The Buddhist tradition gets its name from a man known by his followers as “the Buddha”, or “the awakened one”. Our program will show you the teaching of Buddhism in Thailand by means of practicing it instead of seeing or reading about it. Guided by local monks, you will learn techniques for meditation and chanting. During this program you will have the unique chance to stay overnight in a Thai Buddhist monastery.
About the Accommodation During your time here, you will be staying in one of our eco cottages in single gender rooms. The resort has a communal area where you can eat, relax, meet with other participants or just enjoy the impressive view. There is also WiFi available which covers most of the resort. There is even a karaoke system in the resort’s communal area for those craving some self-styled entertainment noise! Food Arrangements All food is included during your stay and the meals will be typically Thai, including plenty of rice dishes (suitable for vegetarians).
Your new home will be in the Nakhon Ratchasima province. Set amidst rolling hills, the views here are spectacular and the location is tranquil to match. Our resort is situated about 30 km from the city of Nakhon Ratchasima and about 15 km from Wang Nam Khiao, the nearest town. It takes 30 minutes from the resort to get to Wang Nam Khiao, where you will find all the amenities you could need.
Please note the following points: Women are not allowed to stay close to monks or touch the monks, so please be cautious. Do not point your feet to the monks or the Buddha as this is considered disrespectful Men and women cannot sleep together during temple stay and passionate contact is not tolerated Please be calm/quiet during and following meditation and chanting Monks only eat one meal per day (breakfast). This means we probably won’t have lunch and dinner on Wednesday and Thursday (when we will sleep in the temple’s grounds) Please bring enough white clothes that are not tight fitting or see-through. This can also be purchased at the local market
