Greetings,

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

Does anyone know anything about him?

Metta,
Retro. :)

Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)

Greetings Chris,

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

Metta,
Retro. :)

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.
