A message from Phra Le:
My name is Lê Tấn Hòa, a monk from Vietnam. People often call me Phra Lê. “Phra” means “a monk” in Thai language and “Lê” is actually my family name.
I have ordained for 16 years and trained in both main traditions of Buddhism which are Mahayana and Theravada. With the deep yearning for truth, I also study about other religions and spiritual practices by myself. Solitude is my friend, yet to be in service to people is my calling. That is fulfilled by being in this beautiful place of Clarity.
I often find a great peace and gladness when I sit either on my own or with people in silence. I am here to invite you for that sit in order to be and to see. Then you will discover how simple meditation can be and how it helps you in so many aspect of your life.
May peace, joy and clarity come to you.
