Brief Biography of Ajahn Brahmavamso
Ajahn Brahmavamso was born in London in 1951. He regarded himself a Buddhist at the age of 17 through his reading of Buddhist books while still at school. His interest in Buddhism and meditation flourished while studying Theoretical Physics at Cambridge University. After completing his degree and teaching for a year, he travelled to Thailand to become a monk.
He was ordained in Bangkok at the age of 23 by the Abbot of Wat Saket. He subsequently spent 9 years studying and training in the forest meditation tradition of the Venerable Ajahn Chah.
In 1983, he was asked by Ajahn Chah to assist in the establishing of a forest monastery near Perth, Western Australia. Ajahn Brahmavamso is currently the Abbot of Bodhinyana Monastery and the Spiritual Director of the Buddhist Society of Western Australia.
