Wat Lao Buddhavong, Catlett Virginia, Lao Buddhism

Ajahn Bounmy has been the Abbot at Wat Lao Buddhavong since it’s inception more than a quarter century ago and my association with the Lao Community and the Wat goes back  that long ago as well.
The time I had with the Indochina Community Center, Vilay Claluenrath and the Lao Community was an experience I remember fondly to this day. And having the time to visit Vilay, the folks at the Wat and see the progress made made for  a wonderful visit to  the D.C. area…..

The 4th of July Celebration is an Annual event also known as the Family Reunion when Laos from around the U.S. visit friends and family in the D.C. are.. Music, food,and merchandise are available at the festival grounds on the Wat property, but a distance from the Sala and Buddhist Facilities. The festival is known to and enjoyed by Westerners and Asians and has been going on for quite some time now. If you are ever in the D.C area during the festival be sure to give it a visit.
