Ajahn Panna: 2. Life Story




The great British monk Ajahn Panna was ordained in the Thai Forest Tradition, and was blessed with the revered teacher Ajahn Maha Boowa. Ajahn Panna was one of the first known Westerners to ordain, and was widely believed in his lifetime to be an arahant. Although his life intersects little with Burma, his inspiring, five-part biography is being shared here. May this offer inspiration to meditators and monastics everywhere.

This video shows the life of the future monk while he was still a layman living in the United Kingdom. Part One can be watched here. For the next one, go here.
