Map to Wat Klang Tanarintr, Baan Pang sub-district, Promburi province August 27th, 1969, a full moon day on the ninth month of the lunar calendar, was an auspicious day as Mr. Chaiyaboon Suthipol donned the saffron robe and became a monk, as he had wished, at the chapel of Wat Paknam Bhasicharoen. He received the monastic title “Dhammajayo”, which means “The victor through Dhamma”. Since then, the sun of peace started to shine. The full story is available here.
