New Abbot at Chithurst

Abbot Karuniko

Last weekend several of the Harnham sangha joined in the Kathina at Chithurst monastery which included appointing Ajahn Karuniko as the new abbot there. After 22 years Luang Por Sucitto has stepped down and is now preparing for a year sabbatical, starting in New Zealand. This weekend Ajahn Punnyo will go with Anagarika Marcin to join in the Amaravati Kathina. Friends of the Leeds group – Dhammapala – are expected to join to us this Friday and next Friday 7th Nov. we anticipate a large gathering of volunteers to be here for the November Lake Work Day.
