Ajahn Chah Memorial Day

The charismatic Ajahn Chah attracted many Thai and foreign disciples to train under him.

16 January 2020 marks the 28th anniversary of Ajahn Chah’s passing away (in 1992).  He was undoubtedly one of the most revered Buddhist teachers in the modern era, and was a doyen of the “forest monastic tradition” who attracted many Thai and foreign disciples to train under him.

Ajahn Chah led an unassuming and austere life as a true ‘bhikkhu’.  His teachings were rooted in direct experience and presented in simple language.  He was an exemplary teacher who inspired deep confidence and enthusiasm amongst his followers.  Let us pay humble tribute to this great teacher by recollecting his teachings and by practising them faithfully.
