Luang Ta Maha Bua has entered Parinirvana

Post by 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!

Kirt's Tibetan Translation Notes

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche

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.
