Note # 1: A brief Introduction on Ajahn Brahmali
Ajahn Brahmali was born in Norway in 1964. He first became interested in Buddhism and meditation in his early 20s after a visit to Japan. Having completed degrees in engineering and finance, he began his monastic training as an anagarika (keeping the eight precepts) in England at Amaravati and Chithurst Buddhist Monasteries.
After hearing the 'word of Brahm' he decided to travel to Australia to train at Bodhinyana Monastery. Ajahn Brahmali has lived at Bodhinyana Monastery since 1994, and was ordained as a Bhikkhu, with Ajahn Brahm as his preceptor, in 1996.
Ajahn Brahmāli teaches the monastic rules and gives Pali classes to the monks and anagarikas at Bodhinyana Monastery.
Ajahn Brahmāli's clear and thoughtful talks make the teachings of the Buddha accessible to all and are very popular downloads on the BSWA website. He teaches regularly at BSWA and in Singapore. Ajahn Brahmāli has also published a number of articles on important points of the Dhamma.
