Wisdom Develops Samadhi


”Wisdom Develops Samadhi” is one of the few books written by Acariya Maha Boowa Nanasampanno who is the abbot of Wat Pa Ban Tad, a country monastery situated close to the village where he was born and brought up. After leaving school, he went to Wat Bodhisomporn in Udonthani where he was ordained as a Bhikkhu under Ven. Chao Khun Dhammachedi. Some while afterwards he went away to find a meditation teacher. He was directed towards Ven. Acariya Mun (Bhuridatta Thera) and he has said that as soon he met Acariya Mun, he knew that this was his teacher. He learnt and practised under the guidance of Ven. Acariya Mun for nine years until he died at the age of eighty years, after which Acariya Maha Boowa practised the way on his own in the hills and forests of Siam. He then wandered throughout the country, going to nearly every province. When he was offered land by supporters near his home village to build a monastery, he settled down and has lived there since.

Many words in ‘Wisdom Develops Samadhi’ have been left in Pali because there is often no adequate translation in English; it is hoped the reader will forgive any difficulties that this may make, but it is felt better that the reader should not-understand rather than mis-understand. However, a fairly comprehensive glossary has been included at the back, which should cover all the Pali words that are not actually explained in the text.

It is hoped that this book will bring the Dhamma to many people and that it will help people to realise that the living Dhamma is still extant and is not just a thing of the distant past or of the distant future when the next Buddha comes.

May all who read this book gain from it that which will aid them towards the supreme happiness of Nibbana.
