Luang Por Liem Thitadhammo was born in Sri Saket Province in the Northeast of Thailand on Nov 5th, 1941. He ordained when he was twenty years old, practicing in several village monasteries throughout the Northeast, until he joined the Forest-Tradition in 1969, when he first arrived at Wat Nong Pah Pong. He became one of Luang Por Chah’s closest disciples. After Luang Por Chah started becoming severely ill in 1982, he was appointed to the Sangha of Wat Nong Pah Pong to take over the abbotship. He fulfills this duty up to the present day keeping the heritage of Luang Por Chah’s dhamma and characteristic ways of monastic training available for both monks and nuns and lay disciples of the monastery.
