Mun Phuridatto, January 20, 1870 to November 11, 1949 (aged 79), Buddhism, Thailand

Ajahn Maha Boowa wrote the biography of Ajahn Mun. I Live in the area of Isaan where he spent the  early part and end of his life I have spent the past few years identifying the places he visited.lived  and taught. Today I will visit the Forest Monastery (Wat Pa KLang Nong Phu)where he spent about 10 days before he was brought to Sakon Nakhon town to die. I have had the opportunity to visit the many wats of him and his  his students, and have had time with the second generation, the students of his students.
Wandering, by car, the roads and lanes that Ajahn Mun, Chah, Fan, Waen, Maha Bua, KHao Analyo and many of the others wandered, to stay in the caves where they meditated, to experience  the simple forest monasteries they lived, being part of the Buddhist Family that Ajahn Mun gave birth to in Northeast Thailand has been an honor and a gift for which I will always be grateful.
