City: Singapore
Description:

Wat Palelai was founded on 3 Apr 1962 by Phrakru Prakassa Dhammakhun, who was also fondly known as Luang Phor, meaning "Venerable Father". Wat Palelai (Wat means "Temple" in Thai) practises the Theravada Buddhist Tradition, in the Meditation Forest Tradition of Thailand.
The name Palelai is derived from the Pali name, Parileyyaka, after Parileyyaka Forest. It reminds us of the occasion when the Buddha went into retreat in the Parileyyaka Forest in search of solitude after the monks in Kosambi did not take his advice in settling a quarrel among themselves.  During the period of his retreat in the forest, he was cared for by a monkey and elephant until the monks finally came to their senses and were reconciled.
Thus, Palelai is symbolic of a place of retreat and peace.

City: Skiptvet
Description:

Skiptvet Buddhist Monastery is located in the quiet, peaceful countryside of Østfold County, south of Oslo, and is surrounded by fields and forests. It is a place conducive to learning about Buddhism, to practising mindfulness, and to developing peace inside. Although there is much time for individual meditation and contemplation, visitors should be aware that this is not a retreat centre. The emphasis here is on applying the Buddhist Path in all activities throughout the day, and not just during formal meditation. During their stay, guests are expected to take part in the daily routine, and also to help out with certain tasks.

There are now western monks in residence who have been invited here to found the first Scandinavian "forest monastery". The monks belong to the lineage of Ajahn Chah, which is part of the Thai forest tradition.
