Luang Ta Maha Bua has entered Parinirvana

Postby kirtu » Thu Mar 10, 2011 9:39 pm

The great Theravadin monk Luang Ta Maha Bua entered parinirvana on January 30, 2011. Here is a link to his funeral at Wat Pa Ban Tad forest temple.

I don't know of an excellent biography of this great monk, regarded by many as an Arahant, but the Wikipedia entry seems fine.

Thank-you for your wonderful teaching!

I've been waiting to see some video of the funeral, but so far only video on the preparation has shown up on the web. So, If anyone comes across a link, please post it!

It's encouraging to know these lights are here with us.
