Birth Anniversary of Venerable Ajahn Chah

Today, 17 June marks the 102nd birth anniversary of the late Venerable Ajahn Chah Subhaddo (1918 – 1992), a revered monk whose life and teachings continue to inspire many monks and laity alike. Let us pay humble tribute to this great teacher by recollecting his teachings and practising them faithfully.

“Make sure you practise every day. When you feel lazy, keep doing it. When you feel diligent, keep doing it. Practise the Dhamma whether it’s day or night. When the mind is at peace, keep doing it. When it isn’t at peace, keep doing it.

“It’s like when you were a child learning how to write. At first the letters didn’t look pretty. Their bodies were too long; their legs were too long. You wrote like a child. With time, though, the letters looked better because you practised.”
