One of the great buddhist teachers of the last century. his teachings are clear, deep and earthy. Much concerned with practical application to daily living/life rather than scholasctic or theoretical knowledge. The fact that several monasteries in europe, australasia and the us trace their heritage to him and Wat Pah Pong and Wat Pah Nanachat show the applicability of his teachings to modern westerner. He and buddhadhasa bikkhu's works in english are some of the best practical books available that i have come across in twenty years.
