Title: Ajaan Fuang


Ajaan Fuang


Awareness Itself, by Ajaan Fuang Jotiko, compiled and Translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu (Geoffrey DeGraff) (1999; 48pp./143KB) itself_en.pdf (??pages/302KB)

This book contains a delightful and inspiring collection of anecdotal stories retold by an American monk who lived under Ajaan Fuang's tutelage for the last decade of Ajaan Fuang's life. These anecdotes reveal a teaching style that adapted readily to the particular needs of the listener at the moment. Collectively they bear the unmistakable mark of a masterful teacher with a profound grasp of Dhamma, offering valuable lessons for newcomers and experienced practitioners alike.

Jhana Not by the Numbers, by Thanissaro Bhikkhu (2005; 4pp./12KB)

The author recalls how Ajaan Fuang taught meditation to his students: he would give them just enough instruction to stay on-track, but would rarely “certify” them as having attained this or that level of jhana, thereby motivating them to develop self-reliance and ingenuity in their meditation. In the words of Ajaan Fuang: “If I have to explain everything, you'll get used to having things handed to you on a platter. And then what will you do when problems come up in your meditation and you don't have any experience in figuring things out on your own?” A printed copy is included in the book Purity of Heart
