Who was Phra Acariya Thoon Khippapanno?

Postby retrofuturist » Tue May 12, 2009 5:42 am

Greetings,

Although I've not heard of this bhikkhu before, his writings make for interesting reading.

Does anyone know anything about him?

Greetings Chris,

Thanks... I managed to glean from that link that he was a teacher in the Thai Forest tradition.

Many of his talks are available (only Thai) as videos here:

He emphasises the use of panya and investigation more than samadhi, which sets him apart from the other Dhammayut Ajahns.

Greetings,

Cool... I was just flicking through my pile of unread Dhamma Books and realised that one that I bought 2nd hand for $2 is actually by Phra Acariya Thoon Khippapanno.

Greetings,

It was quite a good read and definitely in line with venerable Gavesako's assessment of his teaching style.

The knot that is attachment was tied by us using Wrong Views. Therefore, the know must be untied by us in the opposite fashion to how we tied it, but using: Right View.
