Ven. Ajahn Barhmavamso(1951-)

 

 


Ajahn Brahm was born in London in 1951. He won a scholarship to Cambridge graduating with a Bachelor of Theoretical Physics. Having been interested in Buddhism since age 17, he decided to go to Thailand to become a monk. At the age of 23 he received ordination and trained for several years with the renowned meditation master Ajahn Chah in North-East Thailand. In 1983, he was invited to Perth by the Buddhist Society of Western Australia. He is now the Abbot of Bodhinyana Monastery, and Spiritual Advisor to numerous Buddhist associations around Australia and overseas. In 2005 he was elected the inaugural head of the Australian Sangha Association. Ajahn Brahm uses his unique combination of scholarship, meditation, and a wicked sense of humour to convey Buddhism to wide and varied audience.
