About Us

The Monk Chat Project was started in 1998 by the academic affairs division of the Mahachulalongkorn Rajavidyalaya University. The main idea was to give foreigners who wanted to learn about Bhuddism and Thai culture an opportunity to exchange knowledge and practice with young student monks who could then practice their English in turn. The project became so popular that in 2002, the temple’s academic affairs division began offering basic Vipassana meditation practice for foreigners. Activities now include chatting with monks, meditation retreats and workshops.
