Our Mission

The Honoroble Monk’s Message

Thai Buddhist monks who perform their religious mission and Thais who reside in the US are grateful to His Majesty King Bhumibol who does his duties for the benefits and well being to the nation and all Thais. In addition, he is the king who is a great patron of Buddhism.

He is the only king who was born overseas; he was born at Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States of America.

Therefore, there was a meeting at 775 Newton Street, Chestnut Hill, MA 02467 on June 25, 2002.

There was an agreement that to celebrate His Majesty the King’s 60th anniversary in succession to the throne on June 9, 2006, and the 80th anniversary of his birthday on December 5, 2007, the Buddhist monastery should be founded in the same place where the king was born. The proposed construction can serve as the center of spirituality. It can bring benefits and peace for the international communities and humanity as a whole. To honor the gracious occasion, the monastery was named Wat Nawamintararachutis, The NMR Buddhist Meditation Center.
