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.
We are aware that in some places pandemic restrictions have been lifted. Please note that for the time being in this monastery restrictions remain in place and we are still not open to the public. We hope this will change soon.
If you wish to speak with someone call 01661 881 612 and leave a message.
For those interested in staying, we would consider people who are fully vaccinated (2 jabs), long-term guests (approx. 4 weeks), and those interested in taking up monastic training.
Applicants from overseas will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis but are less likely to be offered a stay due to current quarantine requirements upon arrival in the UK.
