Ajaan Fuang's date of ordination? + other teachers' dates

Postby Wideshanks » Sat Nov 02, 2013 8:14 pm

I'm trying to make a chart of contemporary Theravada teachers as well as their own teachers that they mention in their talks.

But I can't track down Ajaan Fuang's date of ordination. Does anyone know it?

Also does anyone see that I made any mistakes in any of the other dates?

Hi Wideshanks,

It's interesting to make these timelines. Gives a great perspective on when things happened. I think there was another exercise along these lines posted a few month ago. I'll try to find it later, since that might give you some more information.

However, inevitably, such list will always be a small sample of the huge number of interesting teachers that are out there.

Even if we just limit our selves to those who are reasonably well-known in the west, then your list, for example, omits many historically-important Burmese teachers, especially Ledi Sayadaw, Goenka and U Ban Kin. And still-living teachers, such as U Pandita, U Tejaniya, Pa Auk, and their various western disciples. In the Thai area there is Buddhadassa, Maha Bua and students. In Sri Lanka Nanananda. I'm sure others could add another couple of dozen...

I'd include our Ven. Dhammanando in that chart. I read a number of comments from people who have known him through the years as whose lives were changed by the experience. His scholarship is strong. I have to mention the Act Normal film https://vimeo.com/27590176 and the way that it depicts the evolution of a very interesting man on the Path of his life. The film, to my mind, inspirationally speaks to what this practice holds in modern times, at least to one very compelling young man. I'd say Ven. Dhammando has already made something of a mark on the landscape of modern Buddhism, and I expect there's more to come from him.
