The sangha and lay community of Dhammagiri is sending their respects and best wishes to Luang Por Kalyano on occasion of his 60th birthday on the 1st of October. This is an especially auspicious date, as it marks Luang Por's completion of the fifth 12-year-cycle in the Thai and Chinese calendar.

In particular, we like to express our heartfelt gratitude (kataññū-katavedi) for all the support and spiritual friendship Dhammagiri has received from Luang Por in the last 15 years. We feel strong muditā when reflecting on the outstanding contribution he has made in establishing the Buddhist Sāsanā in Australia.

We wish Luang Por good health, vitality, and smooth progress in his Dhamma practice, and sincerely hope that Australia and countless beings worldwide will be able to continue relying on his wisdom and spiritual guidance for many more years to come.
