About the speaker


Name:             Phra Mick Ratanapanyo Bhikkhu
Nationality:   Australian
Ordination Branch: Australian Theravada
Years of Ordination: 6


Phra Mick Ratanapanyo Bhikkhu is a Thai-born Australian monk who currently resides at Wat Avut Vikkasittaram in Bangplad, Bangkok Province.  He has been the man of Theravardan robe since June 2003, ordaining for short period specifically for his mother in Sydney, Australia.

With social racism pressed against him, leading to violence and lengthy records of negligent behaviours, as well as being black-listed in the Australian Police Database, Phra Mick Ratanapanyo knew all too well about the life of suffering and crime.  Three short months of ordination changed him rapidly.  It helped him confront his own worst enemies… anger, greed, pride, ego, fear and Self.


All  previously mentioned topics such as Mental Movies, The Meaning of Life, The Conning Mind and Buddhism – The Last Con were all based on these original findings.
