The Temple by Kancano The Temple by Kancano
"The Temple" Amaravati is a Theravadin Buddhist monastery at the eastern end of the Chiltern Hills in south east England. The centre, in practice as much for ordinary people as for monastics, is inspired by the Thai forest tradition and the teachings of the late Ajahn Chah.
Its chief priorities are the teaching of Buddhist ethics, together with traditional concentration and insight meditation techniques, as an effective way of dissolving stress. The community consists of male renunciants as well as nuns, who live in accordance with strict traditional codes of celibacy, together with a full-time volunteer support staff.
Amaravati Monastery officially opened in 1985, the site having been purchased by the English Sangha Trust from Buckinghamshire County Council. It had previously served as a residential school consisting of several large huts first built for military purposes during World War II. The monastery's temple building was officially opened on 4 July 1999 by Princess Galyani Vadhana, sister of the King of Thailand.
