Venerable Ajahn Chah

The Venerable Ajahn Chah (Bodhiñāṇa Thera) was a Thai Buddhist monk and influential teacher of the Buddha Dhamma. He founded two major monasteries related to the so-called Thai Forest Tradition. He was instrumental in bringing Theravada Buddhism to the West. The Dhamma talks of Ajahn Chah have been recorded, transcribed and translated into many languages.

The main monastery in the large Ajahn Chah family of monasteries is Wat Nong Pah Pong, located in the province of Ubon Ratchathani, in the northeast of Thailand.
