In honour of Ajahn Chah, the Bandar Utama Buddhist Society organised the Ajahn Chah Remembrance Day 2018, on Dec 15 and 16 at SJK (C) Puay Chai (2), Bandar Utama, Petaling Jaya, Selangor. The event is supported by the Theravada Buddhist Council of Malaysia and the Young Buddhist Association of Malaysia.
This day is to commemorate and remember with gratitude the dhamma (Buddhist teachings) of Ajahn Chah. It is also an occasion for reflection and dhamma practice, and for devotees to pay respects and give offerings to some of the most highly respected forest monks. The day also serves as a reminder to devotees to live in harmony with and to protect Nature.
This year, devotees will also be commemorating the 100th anniversary of Ajahn Chah’s birth. Many of his disciples from all over the world will be sharing his teachings over these two days.
