Meditation Retreat

Ajahn Maha Dton Dhirapanno was born in Chonburi, Thailand, in 1967. He graduated as a medical student in Thailand. After graduation, he continued with his medical studies from 1994 to 1997 in the American Board of Pediatrics from Children Hospital of Michigan under a scholarship provided by the government of Thailand. During this period, he was awarded The Best of hospitality Winner.

After he completed his PhD, he found himself in a meditation retreat in US under the guidance of Ajahn of Jayasaro, the abbot of Wat Pah Nanachat. Through this retreat, though he was still a lay person then, he realized that the monastic life is what he had been looking for.

Ajahn Maha Dton Dhirapanno returned to Thailand and went forth in Wat Pah Nanachat. With perseverance, he completed a Buddhist course which entitled him the honour of a “Maha”. (“Maha signifies proficiency in Grade 3 Pali). At present, he is the Buddhist adviser and meditation instructor in hospitals, government departments and schools in the vicinity of Wat Pah Bun Lom.

This is a 1-day meditation retreat, organised by NDR, on 28 May at Poh Ming Tse by Ajahn Dton.  View event details.
