Buddho Practice

I made a promise to someone yesterday that I would try to give a little more detail about the practice of using the parikamma of “buddho.” I was first introduced to the practice by the venerable Thanissaro Bhikkhu in his translation of Keeping the Breath in Mind which was written in Thai by his master Ajahn lee Dhammadaro. To this day I still think this is one of the best meditation manuals out there (for my part at least). With time, and because I allowed my mind to proliferate, I also looked for other understandings of this practice and found them in other Thai Forest teachers. Currently one of my favorites is Ajahn Anan’s Seeking Buddho. His Western disciple Ajahn Achalo also uses buddho often in his guided meditations and I recommend checking out his website at Also, if you use Insight Timer, you can listen to his guided meditations directly in the app.

I hope I have kept my word and please let me know if anyone has any more questions or other buddho resources to share. Sabbe satta sukhitaa hontu!


  1. I remember listening to an English Monk read the Dhamma talks of Ajahn Chah in English and Ajahn Chah taught his disciples Buddho. The recordings of these talks very easily on the web. There is a link to them on the Access to Insight site. Peace
