Venerable Ajaan Maha Boowa is affectionately well-known as "Luangta (Venerable Grandfather)" in Thailand. This book was created for his cremation, and perhaps is the only biography of him in English that is available at the moment. The book consists of 10sections: 1 section of his biography and 9 sections of his Dhammatalks that have been translated into English.

Who is Ajaan Maha Boowa then? Here is some of his biography found in the website

Perhaps a captivating book for those that like reading biographies of great people, but I could not finish it because of the fairly dry language. A lot of great pictures though (seriously).
