Luang Por Piak

Luang Por Piak is one of Thailand’s most respected teachers of Dhamma and meditation. Born in 1948, Luang Por Piak’s  given name is Prasobchai but he was nicknamed ‘Piak’. As a child and young man Luang Por Piak did not have much interest in religion or meditation. It was when he was studying for his Masters in New York that Luang Por Piak began to develop an interest about the mind. When he returned to Thailand from New York for medical treatment, he spent some time in a monastery under the guidance of Luang Pu Boon Nah (disciple of  Luang Pu Kao Wang). He soon discovered he has a genuine affinity for the practice and decided to ordain as a monk for the annual 3-month rains retreat. One of his aunts advised him to visit three teachers: Luang Pu Kao, Luang Pu Fun and Luang Por Chah (all three being disciples of Luang Pu Mun). When Luang Por Piak met Luang Por Chah, he had a strong intuitive  sense that this was the right teacher for him. On  3rd July 1976, Venerable Piak received full Bhikkhu ordination from Luang Por Chah. Luang Por Piak is now the Abbot of Wat Pah Cittabhavana, Pathumthani, Thailand.
