About Ajahn Fuang

Ajahn Fuang Jotiko (1915 – 1986) was a Thai Buddhist monk and abbot in the Thai Forest Tradition of Theravada Buddhism. He was a student of Ajahn Lee at Wat Asokaram, a monastery near Bangkok.

After Ajahn Lee's death in 1961, Ajahn Fuang continued at Wat Asokaram where he was expected to become abbot. However, in 1965 Ajahn Fuang left to pursue greater solitude which he felt would improve his meditation practice. Around 1971, Ajahn Fuang moved to Wat Thamma Sathit in Rayong Province, where he lived as abbot until his death in 1986. Ajahn Fuang's students included American monk Ṭhānissaro Bhikkhu, who studied with him for ten years.
