Nirvana comes to Bangkok

Bangkok Post 09.09.2010 , Writer: Supawadee Inthawong
In 1932, Buddhadasa founded his forest hermitage Suan Mokkh (the pleasurable place to go to nirvana), a centre for study and serious practice in Chaiya district, Surat Thani province.

On Aug 1, Suan Mokkh Bangkok was officially opened on a 10,000 square-metre plot in Suan Rod Fai, formally known as Wachirabenchatat Park, a vast and verdant park in the heart of the city.

Inside Suan Mokkh in Chaiya district, visitors encounter countless dhamma riddles that causes them to contemplate, so they can understand more about the main essence of dhamma. And Suan Mokkh in Bangkok is also full of dhamma codes that challenge visitors to interpret and decipher their hidden meanings.
