♦  No smoking. Please do not smoke anywhere in the premises as we are in an extremely high fire danger area.

♦  Avoid driving to Sayadaw’s Kuti and Meditation Hall. Unless necessary, please avoid driving to Sayadaw’s kuti or Meditation Hall as the noise will disturb to all who are meditating in the Hall or resting in their kuti. Please park your car at the Visitors Parking Lots (near the entrance gate, turn right).

♦  Speak softly. Please try to speak softly especially when you are anywhere within hearing distance of the meditation hall and dining area during Sayadaw’s meal time.

♦ Avoid communicating or visiting to residents. Please do not communicate or visit our resident monks, nuns or meditators to avoid disturbances to their meditation practice especially during their vassa/rain retreat. Should you have any Dhamma questions, you may wish to approach the Centre’s Management.

Thank you for your understanding and kind cooperation!
Welcome to PATVDH and we wish you have a pleasant visit!
Sādhu! Sāadhu! Sādhu!
