Venerable Ajahn Karuniko
Ven. Ajahn Karuniko (Christopher John Woodfine) was born in 1953 near Manchester, England. He graduated from Sheffield University in 1975 with an honours degree in electronics engineering. After graduation, he worked as an engineer in North London. His first contact with Buddhism was from reading a book in 1976, which made a deep impression on him. Two years later, he had the good fortune to meet Ven Ajahn Sumedho who had recently taken up residence in Hampstead Vihara, North London. He then became an anagarika (novice) in 1982 under the guidance of Ven Ajahn Sumedho at Cittaviveka Chithurst Buddhist Monastery, England. In July 1984, he took the monk’s (bhikkhu) ordination with Ven Ajahn Sumedho. Tan Ajahn Karuniko had spent most of his monastic life helping to establish monasteries in England and New Zealand. At present, he is the Abbot at Cittaviveka Chithurst Monastery.
We are pleased to advise that the travel agent has reverted on the ground cost.
The revised price is now only RM4,998. This covers all the 4 main sites: Bodhgaya, Lumbini, Kushinagar and Sarnath, and it comes with 2 domestic flights. The domestic flights are to minimise the time consuming and bus travelling so that pilgrims have more time to take on the uniqueness of each of the holy sites.
Revised Price: RM4,998
Includes hotel accommodation, van and coach transport, 3 meals a day, 2 domestic flights (Gaya – Varanasi, Lumbini – Kathmandu), shared teachers’ cost, entrance fee, tour escort etc.
Excludes International airfare, visa fee and insurance.
Price is subject to change
This pilgrimage is not to be missed as we are indeed blessed to have Luang Por Thong Daeng of the Thai Forest tradition (who took ordination since age 21 and abbot of Doi Phra Chow Dtone Monastery, Chiangmai), guiding us in this spiritual trip with Tan Ajahn Moshe accompanying.
