  • Most people think happiness comes from having things, doing things, or being famous or powerful. There is some happiness in those things, but they also involve much stress and worries.    Join us at the Buddhist Library and hear one Thailand’s most respected Meditation Teacher’s teachings on the higher forms of Happiness.

    Join Ajahn Dtun to explore these teachings at the Buddhist Library on Sunday, March 17.


    Teacher profile

    Ajahn Dtun. Renowned for his gentle demeanour and deep wisdom, Ajahn Dtun has always had a reputation as an impeccable and well-practised monk in the Ajahn Chah tradition.
    Born in 1955 in Ayutthaya, Thailand, Ajahn Dtun was raised in Bangkok. After completing his Bachelor’s Degree in Economics, he decided to become a monk at Wat Nong Pah Pong with Venerable Ajahn Chah as his preceptor.
    Presently, Tan Ajahn Dtun is the Abbot of Wat Boonyawad in Chonburi . Wat Boonyawad has grown from being a hermitage of a few monks to a large monastery with close to fifty monks training under the guidance of Ajahn Dtun.
    He will be accompanied by Ajahn Tejapanno, his translator. Ajahn Tejapanno, born in England, has been a monk for 31 years, and has spent the last 27 years living with Ajahn Dtun.


    All Sessions are by Donation (Dana) to the Buddhist Library. All donations to the Buddhist Library of $2 and over are tax deductible.

    Dana is the traditional practice of generosity, the extending of one’s goodwill, which is fundamental to Buddhism and other spiritual traditions. The dana you give is shared equally with the teacher and the Buddhist Library. This helps to maintain the Library and supports the teacher so that they may offer more teachings on the Dhamma in the future. It is up to each person to determine the amount of dana they’d like to offer. We understand that this is a difficult time financially for many, and people will give what they can. An appropriate dana can’t be prescribed but requires sensitivity to its intent and to the individual’s own situation, as well as awareness of the cost of organising events and supporting teachers who spread the Dhamma.

    Please note: Registrations close 4:00pm Thursday 14 March. Please register before to receive the Zoom link.
