You have reached the Ajahn Pasanno Question and Story Archive.

This project is an attempt to make the oral teachings of Ajahn Pasanno more accessible. It was created by a grateful student with help from others to honor Ajahn Pasanno’s 50th Rains Retreat as a bhikkhu.

New in the January 2024 Release:

This release commemorates the 50th anniversary of Ajahn Pasanno’s upasampadā on January 4, 1974.

Due to Winter Retreat, the next release will be May 2024 at the earliest, and we will not respond to email sent to However please feel free to submit stories and suggestions as described below for inclusion in the next release.

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 to include, we’ll aim to add it to a future release.
