Sanghika Dana Tuesday 23 Dec 2014
Sanghika Dana 是为了筹建一所能让生病的出家人得
Dhanasamanusorn。Dhanasamanusorn的地点是位于 泰国东北部的黎府，Amphoe Meuang，与当地的主要医院，黎府医院
相距约一公里。筹建Dhanasamanusorn 寺院的工程是由Wat Asokaram 的住持，Luang Phor Thong所发起，并将由宁心寺的住持，Chao Kun Keng 协助推行。
其缘起，可追溯到1988年。当时，Luang Phor Chop Tanasamo计划建造一所寺院，以便让泰国东北部及北部生病的出家人能有一个疗养的地方。
寺院建造其间， Luang Phor Chop Tanasamo却圆寂了。从Luang Phor Chop Tanasamo圆寂，至今只有几位出家人住在哪儿。这所寺院已变得相当破旧，并没有获得良好的维修。
在2014年五月，Luang Phor Thong Chantasiri决定继续这项工程来完成Luang Phor Chop Tanasamo 的计划--建造Dhanasamanusorn僧人疗养院。
