aruna ratanagiri

harnham buddhist monastery

Aruna Ratanagiri: Harnham Buddhist Monastery is a 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.


Regrettably, the monastery is presently not open to the public, and the resident community is on winter retreat, which ends on the 31st of March 2021. 

Long-term guests (at least 6 months) and those interested in taking up monastic training could be considered, but our replies might be delayed until spring.
Contact guestmaster@ratanagiri.org.uk, making sure that you read the  Visiting and Staying page before emailing us.

Refer to ANNOUNCEMENTS for up-to-date details. For those who wish to listen to a Dhamma talk, please visit our talks page


You are most welcome to join our weekly live-streamed evening pujas, 7pm BST each Saturday during the winter retreat.
(6 days a week pujas might resume after the retreat.)
