Today marks the 25th anniversary of Ajahn Chah’s passing.  Thousands of his disciples and students returned to Wat Pah Pong in Ubon Ratchathani to observe the occasion with meditation, Dhamma teaching, and merit making.  Among the senior disciples present were Luang Phor Liem, successor to Ajahn Chah as Abbot of Wat Pah Pong, and Luang Phor Sumedho, Ajahn Chah’s senior-most Western disciple and the first Abbot of Wat Pah Nanachat.
