Venerable Ajahn Pannavaddho Thera1925 -2004 and BGKT Library
Ajahn Pannyavaddho Thera died aged 78 on 18th August 2004. He was the most senior western monk in Thailand. An obituary by Than Ajahn Maha Boowa appeared in The Middle Way: Journal of the Buddhist Society 79 (4) (February, 2005) pages 219-226.
Mrs Jane Browne kindly donated several books from his library to BGKT’s library. Ajahn Pannavaddho was very important in the history of Buddhism in Britain, and BGKT is honoured to have his books in our library. Mrs Browne also sent a CD of his talks and one of his funeral. We are very grateful to her.
