Ajahn will also hold a tea time question and answer session on Monday evening, May 9th, beginning at 5:00 pm.
Ajahn Punnadhammo is Canadian, born in Toronto in 1955. In 1992, he was ordained in Thailand as a bhikkhu (Buddhist monk) in the Ajahn Chah tradition.
Ajahn began studying and practicing the Dhamma in 1979 under Kema Ananda, the founder and first teacher at the Arrow River Center. Between 1990 and 1995 he spent most of his training time in Ubon Thailand at Wat Pah Nanachat, the International Forest Monastery of Ajahn Chah. In 1996 he took over as the abbot of Arrow River Hermitage and has been there ever since. Currently Ajahn is finishing a book on beings from the ten-thousand-fold universal system (brahmās, maras, devas, asuras, yakkhas, gandhabbas, nāgas, petas, and the like).
