Many who attended his meditation retreats became enthusiastic about the possibility of establishing a permanent monastic community in the area.
The land was allocated to establish a forest retreat. Care for what became Abhayagiri was placed in the hands of a group of lay practitioners, the Sanghapala Foundation.
The latter announced on 8 February that he would be leaving Abhayagiri and returning to England, having accepted a request from Ajahn Sumedho to succeed him as abbot at Amaravati. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
