LP Lee of Wat Asokaram
Video clips I took at the temple.
Wat Asokaram is the awe-inspring temple of LP Lee, who is one of the most prominent Forest Ajarns of the previous century. He was famed for his deep insights into the Dhamma and meditation, as well as his ability to teach them to others using various metaphors. Above we see the 13 Chedis of Wat Asokaram, represent the 13 Tudong precepts.
