First of all, I didn't open the PDF file, but searched online for something on the subject. I am uncertain as to why his remembermce day should be in December when he died in January. Do you know the reason for this, yamaka?
:anjali:

Here are several links I found on the subject.

This event is organized by a generous sponsor in Malaysia who has faith in the Ajahn Chah tradition and prints many books for free distribution. That is why many senior monks have made extra effort to come to Malaysia in December and then go to Thailand in January where the "original" memorial event is held every year.

Although no one doubts the sincerity of these Ajahns, some people have difficulty reconciling their lectures on forgiveness, metta and acceptance in view of the failure at reconciliation between their sangha and Ajahn Brahm after such a long period. In the souvenior program, it was noted that one Ajahn who spent many years in the Perth monastery pointedly ommited the name of the abbot, mentioning as his teachers visiting monks from Thailand instead. I hope mention of this conflict is not taboo but I think it is worth mentioning as Ajahn Brahm continues to be a very popular teacher here. Furthermore, Ajahn Hasapanna, the bhikkhuni who is the present abbess of Dhammasara is also a Malaysian and is presently also giving teachings here. One really hopes that they can reconcile and put an end to this dichotomy.

Hi Pilgrim

Had you seen this http://www.dhammaloka.org.au/home/item/ ... dwide.html?

I don't think mention of "this conflict" is taboo but hopefully it is becoming obsolete.

More about ACRD 2011 - 20th Anniversary
The Ajahn Chah Remembrance Day (ACRD) is a special day devoted to one of the great contemporary Buddhist monks in Thailand, Venerable Ajahn Chah who is also known as Ajahn Chah Subhaddo. He established the first monastery in Thailand to be run by and for English-speaking monks, Wat Pah Nanachat ('International Forest Monastery') which Venerable Sumedho assisted in the setting up as the first abbot. Venerable Ajahn Chah is especially revered for his contribution and dedication to the establishment of the practice of the Thai Forest Tradition in Buddhism outside of Thailand. This year’s event, which is the third one to be held in Malaysia, is especially significant as it marks the 20th anniversary of this great monk’s passing. The two-day event on the 17th & 18th of December 2011, will be held at the SJK (C) Yuk Chai (Taman Megah) school hall. Monks from the UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and Malaysia will be attending this event.

I have been reading Ajahn Chah's words and those of his disciple Ajahn Sumedho all morning.

:bow: :bow: :bow:

:namaste:
To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

Yesterday was the Ajahn Chah 20th year anniversary celebration at Wat Nong Pah Pong, Ubon, Thailand.

:anjali:

๑๐. ยมฺหา ธมฺมํ วิชาเนยฺย
สมฺมาสมฺพุทฺธเทสิตํ
สกฺกจฺจํ ตํ นมสฺเสยฺย
อคฺคิหุตฺตํว พฺราหฺมโณ ฯ ๓๙๒ ฯ

เมื่อรู้ธรรมที่พุทธเจ้าทรงแสดง
จากบุคคลใด
ควรเคารพนอบน้อมบุคคลนั้น
เหมือนพราหมณ์บูชาไฟ

From whom one knows the Truth Sublime
Which the Awakened One proclaimed,
Devotedly should one revere him,
As a brahmana tends the sacrificial fire.
