Ajahn Jumnien (Jumnearn) has a Birthday Today!

I had almost forgotten about Ajahn Jumnien's birthday being today. THAT's why so many monks and other people are at the temple. It's strange that I almost forgot his birthday because my birthday is also the same day as his... MAY 1st.

I've never seen so many people at the temple before - so many stands set up to sell fruit, roti (fried pastry with egg and banana in it), som tam, and the rest of it. There were about 1000 people there yesterday. There were buses and cars and motorbikes parked all over the place. Police were there, people to guide drivers where to park... it was a huge event!

Happy Birthday Ajahn Jumnien!
