In the early of 2009, Nibbinda Forest Monastery was officially offered to The Most Venerable Pa Auk Tawya Sayadaw and thus the monastery was named by Venerable Pa Auk Sayadaw. The meaning of “nibbinda” is “disgust with worldly life”. By leaving the hustle and bustle of the worldly life, the monks will be able to learn and practise Buddha’s teachings in a comfortable environment.
