Ajaan Thate


Title: Ajaan Thate


Ajaan Thate


<dt>The Autobiography of a Forest Monk: Venerable Ajahn Thate of Wat Hin Mark Peng Nongkhai Province, by Venerable Ajahn Thate (Phra Rajanirodharangsee), translated from the Thai by Bhikkhu Ariyesako (1996; 157pp./471KB)

</dt> <dd>A delightful reminiscence of a long life lived as a monk in the forests of Thailand. Highlights include: his encounters with various monks and seekers, ranging from scoundrels and charlatans to the great Ajaans, such as Ajaan Mun and Ajaan Sao; his descriptions of some of the wrong turns he made during the course of his meditation practice over the years; how he fulfilled his duties as a son by teaching Dhamma to his mother right up to the end of her life. The book is an enjoyable read, sprinkled throughout with some lovely gems of Dhamma.

A simple and practical guide to the use of the meditation phrase, buddho, which is used to settle the mind to the point at which discernment can begin to arise.

Steps Along the Path, by Phra Ajaan Thate Desaransi (Phra Rajanirodharansi), translated from the Thai by Thanissaro Bhikkhu (1994; 14pp./43KB)

A short handbook on the practice of meditation, with tips and recommendations for new and experienced meditators. Of particular interest is Ajaan Thate's discussion of how best to respond when visions and signs arise during the course of meditation practice.
