Dhammavidu (Revealer of Dhamma) is an English Monk residing in the Nanachat section of Suan Mokkh Balaram (local name, Wat Tarn Nam Lai).  He has for many years been the mainstay of the monthly foreigner retreats teaching both meditation and Dhamma.  He first came to Suan Mokkh in 1994, sat the January retreat that year, then stayed as a layman in the Dorn Kiem section of Nanachat for nine months before taking novice ordination in Surat Thani at Wat Tridhammaram.  He took full ordination at the same temple six months later, and, apart from brief sojourns in Takiap (Wat Kaw Krailat) and Georgetown, Penang, Malaysia (Mi-Tor-Si temple on Penang Hill) has haunted the area ever since.  He and his alms bowl can be found every morning prowling the main highway just north of Suan Mokkh Balaram, scrounging food.

The Revealer of Dhamma takes pride in the fact that he’s never, ever spent even one night in the main monastery of Suan Mokkh.

Dhammavidu’s services as a teacher can be rented, the fee consisting in enough food, shelter and the cost (tickets etc.) of transporting him back and forth. Any reasonable request will be considered.  Serious enquiries can be made to dhammavidu@hotmail.com
