Ajahn Dtun is considered to be one of the greatest living meditation masters in Thailand. 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. Even as a junior monk, there was a buzz among the monks regarding Ajahn Dtun due to his dedication to practise and an aura of calm and clarity around him.
This is a rare opportunity to hear teaching from one of the great meditation masters who has come from Thailand for a short visit.
Dhamma talk by Ajahn Dtun
Ajahn Dtun was born in 1955 in Ayutthaya, Thailand. He 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, Ajahn Dtun is the Abbot of Wat Boonyawad in Chonburi. Wat Boonyawad has grown from being a hermitage with a few monks to a large monastery with close to sixty monks training with Tan Ajahn.
He will be accompanied by Ajahn Tejapanno, his translator. Ajahn Tejapanno, born in England, has been a monk for 23 years, and has spent the last 19 years living with Ajahn Dtun.
All Sessions 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 instructions and guidance for this course are offered without requesting a fee and it is up to individuals to determine the amount of dana they would like to offer. It can sometimes be easy to become confused when we are new to this and we wonder “how much should I give?” This is a relevant question in the material economy but an appropriate dana cannot be prescribed but requires sensitivity to its intent and awareness of the costs and expenses associated with organising a course.
