Why is there War? | Ajahn Mudito | 13 March 2022

Why is there War? | Ajahn Mudito | 13 March 2022

March 24, 2022

Dhamma talk by Ajahn Mudito on the 13 March 2022, at the Buddhist Society of Victoria (BSV). Ajahn discusses why is there War and references the Attadandasutta (SNP 4.15).

Bhante Mudito was born in a remote village in Northern-Finland. After completing military service, he travelled to the United States where he attended chef school and worked in a high-end hotel for a few years. While living in New York his long-time interest in Buddhism evolved as he started meditating with different groups. He sought after many teachers and found many of them to be too lofty of simply too boring. But then the stars aligned when Ajahn Brahm wrote his hit book Open the Door of your Heart and on the book promotion tour he came to New York where Mudito fell in love with Ajahn and his simple teachings. He has followed Ajahn Brahm ever since and in 2010 he went to stay in Bodhinyana and ordained as a monk in 2012.
