You would have noticed that there is a lower ground- it consists of a small room. Khun Mae have constructed the area with the aim to provide the opportunity for us to practise meditation without interruption. This is also known as one of the kamathana practice in the Thai forest tradition- where one person stays alone to practice chanting and meditation. We will not need to worry about helping out in the Samnak- and is given the time and opportunity to practice in a very peaceful environment undisturbed.
The outer area has a lot of trees for us to practice sitting meditation and a circular walking path for walking meditation. We can choose to do walking meditation at the circular path, followed by sitting meditation under the umbrella tents (set up under the trees). We can choose to stay up all night and alternate between walking and sitting meditation.
In front of the Buddha, the following is chanted:
