Ven Jinaratana Thera, who first came to Dhammagiri as a lay person (Jeff Watts), now a senior Monk, is staying at Dhammagiri from 10/05 to 18/07.
Originally from Canada, he was ordained in Sri Lanka at Na Uyana Aranya in the Sri Kalyani group of Forest Monasteries, and has now completed 12 vassa as a monk.
Currently, he lives at Dhamsuwa Monastery near Melbourne, helping to establish a branch of the Sri Kalyani/Na Uyana lineage in Australia.
He will be available for some Dhamma discussions after the meal.
