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 amulets 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 amulet shops - all amulets are blessed by this Thai abbot himself, or they are not sold. :)
