Wat Pa Phu Kon, Udon Thani

November 24, 2018

Wat Pa Phu Kon is situated within the area of the Na Yung – Nam Som National Forest Reserve at Ban Na Kham Yai, Tambon Ban Kong, on the seam of 3 provinces; namely, Udon Thani, Loei, and Nong Khai. The temple took shape out of the realization of a number of Buddhists in the contribution as well as benefits of the nature and watershed forests, which were gradually being degraded; and also, out of their wish to follow the footsteps of the late King Rama IX in keeping forests fertile. So, they sought permission to use a piece of land within the Na Yung – Nam Som National Forest Reserve as the location to build Wat Pa Phu Kon.

Wat Phothisomphorn, Udon Thani

November 25, 2018

Many of you may have practiced meditation in various religious places in the provinces to calm your mind and bring prosperity to your lives. Those who have never practiced meditation might think that the sites must be in rough areas to strengthen our patience and must be far away for tranquility. In fact, meditation can be practiced in general temples. The extent of calmness and intention depends on the mind of the practitioners. Wat Phothisomphorn in Udon Thani Province is another very significant temple in the mediation category. It emphasizes the dharma practice and following the teachings of Lord Buddha as well as the famous instructors. The atmosphere in the temple is nice and pleasant which resembles those in other temples. The temple has well-known instructor teachings attached around the area for Buddhists to come and learn. Moreover, the temple has many other interesting venues such as Phra Borommathat Thamma Chedi, a pagoda built on the occasion of His Majesty the Late King, King Rama IX, 80th Birthday Anniversary.
