It’s a rare day when Ajarn Jumnien returns to his home temple. He is a very busy abbot, and constantly traveling the world to give meditation courses. For the most part he is staying at a temple in Ratchaburi these days.
We are glad to have him back at Wat Tham Suea for many reasons. He will be there for 3 days and then go to Phuket to a Buddhist temple there for a day trip and return to Wat Tham Suea in Krabi for a short time.
Ajarn Jumnien is a strong believer in the power of amulets. He is generous with them – giving them away to people he meets daily at the temples. He carries a number of pendants attached to his monk robe – 20 or more. He also has some in his pockets to give away.
If you haven’t visited Wat Tham Seua in Krabi province – near Krabi town, you should make it a point to do so. There are a number of unique things to see – including caves where the monks live; a foothills area; a mountain to climb (1237 steps) and numerous statues and pendant shops – all pendants are blessed by this Thai abbot himself, or they are not sold.
