Reflections on Ajahn Chah's Exceptional Paramī - Ajahn Dhammasiha
16 January is the death anniversary of Ajahn Chah, the founder of our lineage in the Theravada Forest Tradition, which has now spread to many Western counries. Traditionally, a one week long remembrance festival is held at his monastery Wat Nong Pah Pong on the occasion. Hundreds of monks and thousands of laity gather to practise meditation and listen to Dhamma, and on the last day a huge procession circumambulates Luang Por Chah's stupa to express their gratitude, respect and devotion.
Ajahn Dhammasiha offers some reflections on the exceptional 'Pāramī' ('Spiritual Perfections') Ajahn Chah had cultivated, which are outstanding even among the great Krooba Ajahns.
