Dhamma Talks

Winter Retreat 2005
January 4th to March 31st, 2005

35 Talks by Venerable Ajahn Pasanno



Ven. Pasanno Bhikkhu took ordination in Thailand in 1974, with Ven. Phra Khru Nañasirivatana as preceptor. During his first year as a monk he was taken by his teacher to meet Ajahn Chah, with whom he asked to be allowed to stay and train. One of the early residents of Wat Pah Nanachat, Ven. Pasanno became its abbot in his ninth year. During his incumbency Wat Pah Nanachat developed considerably, both in physical size and in reputation, and Ajahn Pasanno has become a very well-known and highly respected monk and Dhamma teacher in Thailand. Ajahn Pasanno moved to California on New Year's Eve of 1997 to share the abbotship of Abhayagiri Buddhist Monastery.

All of the talks on this CD were given at Abhayagiri Buddhist Monastery from January 4th to March 31st, 2005, during the annual Winter Retreat. This series includes 19 talks on the stages of Anapanasati, either given to the resident monastery community as part of the series of daily teachings, or during the Saturday Night and Lunar Observance Night gatherings, which are open to the lay community. The 16 additional talks on this CD took place on subsequent Saturday Night and Lunar Observance Night gatherings.
