Lions Roar : July 2016
What is your practice tradition? Thai Forest Tradition. Primary teachers? Ajaan Fuang Jotiko, Ajaan Suwat Suvaco. Favorite non-Theravada Buddhist teacher? Dogen, especially the late-period talks. What is your current or next project? I’m working on a complete translation of the Sutta Nipata, a collection of early Buddhist poems. After that, I’d like to do a book on karma. Recommended dharma books? Keeping the Breath in Mind, by Ajaan Lee; Straight from the Heart, by Ajaan Maha Boowa. Your favorite virtue? Truthfulness. Your chief characteristic? It depends on the situation. I once dreamed that Ajaan Fuang had a closet filled with many hats, which he wore as appropriate on different occasions. I like to think that I’ve got a similar closet. Your idea of happiness? Awakening. Your idea of misery? Listening to a dharma teacher distort the dharma. What’s the worst job you’ve ever had? Doing a door-to-door survey for Mutual of Omaha one summer when I was in college. The natural talent you’d most like to have? The ability to read minds. It would help a lot in teaching. Your favorite current TV show? I don’t even know what’s on TV. That’s one of the pleasures of being a monk— not being bombarded by the values of mass culture. Another pleasure is being able to go through life without any money in my pocket or credit accounts to my name. What’s for dinner? We’re allowed only medicines in the evening—recently I’ve developed a taste for fresh turmeric in vinegar. A motto that represents you? I like Ajaan Mun’s motto: Practice the Dhamma in accordance with the Dhamma. LION’S ROAR | JULY 2016 37
