Quick question about Ajahn Chah's teachings

Hey there all! So the single volume collection of Ajahn Chah's teachings says it contains most of his transcribed and translated talks. I'm just wondering if anyone's aware of any of his talks that aren't included in that collection? I'm trying to read all his English material. Thanks :)

There is a hardcover book available from some Ajahn Chah lineage monasteries called something like the Complete Teachings of Ajahn Chah. Those are all the talks I know of translated into English.

I think you're right. You can get the book here from Abhayagiri - https://www.abhayagiri.org/books/499-th ... -hardcover

I received that from Abhayagiri years ago. It is an excellent volume. One of only a few books I keep readily available.

Oh ok. For some reason I thought I read somewhere that the collected teachings is most but not all. I guess it's all of them. I have the epub version, but the hardcover would be nice to have. Thanks everyone :)

Not sure if these are indeed "new"/untranslated Dhamma talks by Ajahn Chah, but also in the Abhayagiri book list is the following volume (downloadable as .pdf):
https://www.abhayagiri.org/books/517-st ... wing-water

Still Flowing Water
Ajahn Chah
Year Published: 2013
A collection of eight new or significantly revised translations of Ajahn Chah’s Dhamma talks by Thanissaro Bhikkhu. Two of them have never been translated before into English, and four of them are based on entirely new Thai transcriptions of the best and most complete source recordings available.


Maybe it might be helpful for you, Santimuni, to skim through the complete book list, as there are several more volumes about Ajahn Chah, which all also can be downloaded right there:

There are also two books translated by Paul Breiter and published by Shambhala which, for copyright reasons, could not be included in the collected teachings book. They are called "Being Dharma" and "Everything Arises, Everything Falls Away".
