Luang Por Tongdaeng Varapañño is the abbot of Wat Doi Phra Jao Ton Luang near Chiang Mai. He was born in Sakon Nakhon Province in the Northeast of Thailand in August 1954. At the young age of 13 he ordained as a novice with Luang Por Wan Uttamo. Some time later, he trained in the monastery of Luang Por Waen, Wat Doi Mae Pang. After his full ordination as a bhikkhu, Luang Por Tongdaeng's most important teachers were Luang Por Prasit, and Luang Por Plien of Wat Aranyavivek.
Luang Por encourages us not to miss the opportunity we have to practice the Dhamma, and to develop our heart with all the 10 foundations of making good karma ('Puñña-kirirya-vatthu').
He also answers several questions about meditation.
