Distinguished Theravada Buddhist Monk in the Thai forest tradition Ajahn Sucitto will lead a day of meditation on Saturday, May 4, 2013 from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Amitabha Village Retreat Center near Lansing. The public is cordially invited to attend. The event is sponsored by the Lansing Buddhist Association. There is no fee to attend, but any donation is welcome.
Ajahn ordained in 1976 and trained in the forests of Thailand. Later he was a founding member of Cittaviveka (Chithurst Buddhist Monastery), the first Ajahn Chah monastery in the west, where he has been abbot since 1992. An author of dharma books and leader of many hundreds of retreats, Ajahn has devoted his life to spreading dharma for the well being all. His visit is a blessing for Michigan.
Registration is required because space is limited. Please email your contact information to SucittoLansingBuddhist@gmail.com to register. Details about the event will follow in a reply email. Participants will offer a noon meal to Ajahn, and then share lunch with each other.
