aruna ratanagiri

harnham buddhist monastery

Aruna Ratanagiri: Harnham Buddhist Monastery is a traditional Theravada Buddhist community on the border of England and Scotland. The abbot, Ajahn Munindo, received bhikkhu precepts from the late Venerable Ajahn Chah of Wat Nong Pah Pong in North-East Thailand in 1976. Aruna Ratanagiri currently has facilities for up to approximately twelve residents and an adjacent lay guest facility known as Kusala House.

BECAUSE OF THE RECENT STORM OUR MONASTERY HAS BEEN WITHOUT NORMAL ELECTRICITY SUPPLY SINCE FRIDAY 26TH NOV. IT IS NOT CLEAR WHEN IT WILL BE CONNECTED AGAIN. ACCORDINGLY PLEASE EXPECT DELAYS IN CORRESPONDENCE AND DISRUPTION TO OTHER ACTIVITIES. 


We are aware that in some places pandemic restrictions have been lifted. Please note that for the time being in this monastery some restrictions still remain in place and we are not fully open to the public.
