Invitation to Submit Stories

There are hundreds of Ajahn Pasanno Dhamma talks on, many of which contain inspiring, touching, or memorable stories. It would be great to include these stories in the Question and Story Archive, but the archive creators don’t plan listen to all these talks.

So if you listen to a good story on or Abhayagiri’s YouTube channel, please send it to us so we can share it with others.

To submit a story, please send the following to

  1. The title and date of the Dhamma talk.
  2. A link to the talk on or the Abhayagiri YouTube Channel.
  3. The time the story begins in the recording.
  4. A suggested title for the story.

If the story isn’t duplicated elsewhere in the archive and seems worthy to be included, we’ll aim to add it to a future version of the Archive.

Please send feedback and suggestions to If you are having technical difficulties with the website, please include details about your device, operating system, and web browser in your email.
