Our Mission

The long-term plan is to raise sufficient funds through private donations to build monks’ residences, a meditation hall, and a general purpose hall on the monastery grounds for use by the lay community. A major fundraising effort is currently underway to raise the monies for building this permanent monastery. All operating expenses and building fund capital are obtained from donations freely given by those who come to hear Dhamma talks and seek guidance from the monks.

Once the necessary structures are built at the forest site, the monks will continue to officiate Buddhist ceremonies and provide Dhamma instruction for all who seek it. The monastery will be a source of information and learning about Buddhism, as well provide a space for those who wish to come on short – or long-term retreats to deepen their practice of the Buddha’s teachings.

The Colorado Forest Monastery Of Luangta Maha Boowa was established by the students of Luangta Maha Boowa, both the monks and lay people in the year of 2012, located in Parker, Colorado in order to provide counseling services to the local community. The monastery intends to follow the Thai Buddhist Forest tradition, led by Luangta Maha Boowa in order to support the people to practice and learn the Buddhist teachings ultimately providing its followers with a meaningful, happy, and peaceful life. Our intention is to spread Buddhism to all Americans and to provide an opportunity to develop a deeper and more meaningful understanding of Buddha. We accept everyone, and do not discriminate against anyone, and welcome all people of all religious backgrounds, color and race. The monastery understands the importance of education and therefore providing its followers with the right information through teaching correctly. We also understand the importance of unity, of all Buddhists, and bringing together all the different sects in the Buddhist religion so that we can all work together towards a common cause. By understanding each other’s differences, it will further strengthen the missionary cause of the temple.

Parts of Speech tagging is the process of labelling the words in the text with their appropriate labels. The labels assigned are noun, verb, adjective, adverb, pronoun... etc. For performing natural language processing, Parts of Speech tagging is an essential requirement. It is very simple statistical model for many Natural Language Processing applications. In this paper, we propose a parts of speech tagger for Pali language. Pali though considered as extinct, has very rich literature comprising works on Logic, History, Medicine, Pharmacology etc. It is an Indo-Aryan language. The general approach used for development of Pali tagger is a Rule based approach. It also presents the tagset used for Pali language. The paper shows the performance of proposed Rule based tagger for a dataset up to 300 sentences / 1000 words. The learning algorithms Support Vector Machine and Decision Tree have been used for measuring the performance on Pali tagged corpus.
