Resident Monk

Abbot: Ajahn Nattakul


Our History, Our Purpose

The history of Sarasota Forest Monastery and its predecessor, The Buddhist Association of Central Florida, started in November 2011.  The primary activities include inviting Buddhist monks to teach and give counsel to a group of Buddhists living in Manatee, Sarasota and Charlotte counties in the State of Florida.  The group encourages its members to practice living in the way as instructed by the Buddha some 2,500 years ago for the benefit of both the practitioner as well as all other living beings with whom the practitioner relates.
