Special Retreat During King Rama IX Royal Funeral Procession


The royal funeral procession of His Majesty King Rama IX will be held October 25 through October 29, 2017.   On the second day of the ceremonies, October 26th, the royal cremation will take place at Sanam Luang.  In addition to showing our deep respect to His Majesty, this solemn occasion offers us the opportunity to remember Buddha's teachings on impermanence and suffering, and to strive toward spiritual progress.   Ven. Vimokkha will offer a special 10 day retreat at Wat Pipphalivanaram in Rayong for all friends of the Dhamma.   Participants may decide to spend the first day in Bangkok to pay respects to the King.  Further details will be posted soon, but feel free to contact Ven. Vimokkha with inquiries.
