P1040127This site is a hub. It offers access to written teachings by Ajahn Sucitto (me) and information as to upcoming teaching venues; also there are links to where you can obtain audio talks and books, and connect to websites where more of my material, and that of my friends and colleagues, can be found.

In case you were wondering, I am a Buddhist monk (bhikkhu). I entered monastic life in 1975 in Thailand, but since 1978 I’ve been based in Britain. I spent fourteen years training under Ajahn Sumedho, the senior Western disciple of Ajahn Chah, and so I’m part of that lineage of direct practice. The lineage has an umbrella website www:forestsangha.org. I am based at Cittaviveka Monastery in Chithurst, West Sussex, near Petersfield in southern England (www.cittaviveka.org).

Having served as abbot of Cittaviveka since 1992, I resigned from that post at the end of October 2014. I took a sabbatical in 2015, but am teaching again for the forseeable future. I still maintain a base at Cittaviveka but in 2018, I’ll only be there between April and late June; after that I intend to be in the USA, and spending Vassa at Temple Monastery in New Hampshire. I’m expecting to return to Britain in December for the winter 2018-2019.
