16 January 2022 marks the 30th anniversary of Ajahn Chah’s passing, one of the most esteemed and influential Buddhist teachers in the modern era. A doyen of the ‘forest tradition’, Ajahn Chah led an unassuming and austere life as a true ‘bhikkhu’. Teaching from his own direct experiences, he related Dhamma in effective but simple ways, often using analogies which continue to be echoed today. The legacy of Ajahn Chah endures through his able and respected disciples who established branch monasteries all over the world.
Nalanda Buddhist Society pays humble tribute to Luang Pu Chah Subaddho (หลวงปู่ชา), a great teacher who was a relentless beacon to guide those with little dust in their eyes. May well-practised ones such as he continue to shine the Path of Dhamma for the benefit of countless beings.
