Ajahn Pannayvaro is abbot of Bodhi Tree Monastery in Eastern Australia, and also web master and creator of the world’s most comprehensive Buddhist Studies website www.buddhanet.net , which he continues to work on in collaboration with other world wide Buddhist institutions. He also teaches Vipassana (insight meditation) courses regularly world wide, and is in Thailand at the invitation of Mahaculalongkorn University (Monk’s university) to teach a retreat in English. Having just entered his 70’s and having been a monk for going on 30 years has dnot diminished his vigour. He practised intensive Mahasi style meditation with several Burmese masters, most especially Sayadaw U Janaka, who is one of the most highly respected Burmese masters with many centers around the world under his tutelage.
