Ajahn Nyanadhammo

Greetings, does anybody know if Ajahn Nyanadhammo is still the abbot of Wat Pah Nanachat International Monastery? He doesn't seem to be listed as a community member there and Googling him up drew nothing after 2007.

I've never met Ajahn but for some reason I resonate with his dhamma talks even more than Ajahn Brahm's. I listen to both of them on the BSWA website. I was hoping to find more of Ajahn Nyanadhammo's talks to listen to but couldn't find any.

Does anybody know if he has returned to Australia? Thanks.

Hello ando, all,

Ajahn Nyanadhammo has been the abbot of Wat Pa Ratanawan in Thailand, a forest monastery at the foot of Kow Yai National Park, since 2007.

His position of abbot of Wat Pah Nanachat has been taken by Ajahn Kevali - from 2007 until the present.

Of course really we shouldnt have favourite Dhamma teachers, its the robe not the person etc. But I suspect that many of us do. Mine is Ajahn Munindo. :smile:

I'd say the opposite: it's the person, not the robe.

I would have loved an autographed alms bowl from Ajahn Chah. :tongue:
The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah

I heard an anecdote once about a military officer came to him asking for holy water, Ajahn Chah then spat to him because the spat came from a monk so it must be holy.
