Tan Jagaro: A Buddhist Monk on Pilgrimage - Invited Teacher

From Tan Jagaro:

As of mid-April 2023, I will be on monastic pilgrimage to walk along the coastal areas of California.

In keeping with my monastic rules, I will only accept food that is offered that day, not use money, and sleep wherever there is availability. This monastic pilgrimage is often called “tudong.” This is a Thai derived word for the Pāli word “dhutaṅga,” which means “austere practice.

I began Buddhist practice in 2004 as a lay person after attending a meditation retreat. Inspired by the Pāḷi Canon and more contemporary masters, my confidence in the Buddha’s teachings increased over the years.


I first visited Abhayagiri Monastery in 2012 and later practiced under Ajahn Pasanno and his community. In 2015 I went forth as a Sāmaṇera, and then in 2016 I took full Bhikkhu precepts. I left Ahayagiri in 2020 and have been traveling ever since. More recently, I have visited Suddhavāri Monastery and Empty Cloud Monastery.
