I know that Ajahn Jayasaro dwells in mountain of Khao Yai, alone, and gives techings one per mounth.
Honestly, I would like to be his disciple, but i think that he prefere to be alone, and practice alone...

And, as i know, Ajahn Sumedho dwells in Thailand, perharps is Wat Pah Nanachat

I'am not sure about that i said

Thank you friend.

Is Khao Yai a forest mountain or something or is it monastery?

Ajahn Jayasaro lives on a private estate about the size (and layout) of a five-star country club...

They aren't Thai monks. One is English and the other American (USA). As now is the rains retreat, you are unlikely to access them before November. Ajahn Jayasaro, I think is available at Khao Yai (big mountain) on Sundays by appointment. Ajahn Sumedho is "in retirement". His work is completed, I think that means.

Ajahn Jayasaro lives near Rai Thawsee, a private Buddhist school in Pak Chong called "Panyaprateep". He is the advisor of several such schools in Thailand and also abroad. He has a kuti and walking path in a quiet corner of this property where he can practise and study undisturbed, but occasionally he gives a public talk as well.

Here is a link to a new book of photographs combined with some poems:


Seen in their true light
by Ajahn Jayasaro (107 photos)

there is an energy
that unchannelled
flows into ill-will and finding fault
deal with it wisely
and you may pour that molten flow
into a Buddha
within your heart

I thought it just meant he was old, and is not really up to teaching anymore.
Then,
saturated with joy,
you will put an end to suffering and stress.

Thanks. Do you mean as a download then?
If it IS available as a hard copy, where would this be?
Not at "forestSangha publications.org" anyway.
