A monk at the local Wat i attend gave me a cd recording containing 14 talks on the Anapanasati sutta by Ajahn Pasanno which i highly recommend listening to.

Ajahn Pasanno (Reed Perry) was born in La Pas, Manitoba in Canada. He studied History at the University of Winnipeg. After graduating he spent some time traveling in India, and from there went to Thailand.

In 1974 Ajahn Pasanno became a bhikkhu at Wat Pleng Vipassana with Phra Khru Nanasirivatana as preceptor. He developed a genuine interest in monastic life, and during his first year as a monk was taken by his teacher to meet Ajahn Chah, with whom he asked to be allowed to stay and train.

:namaste:
To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.
