Buddhadasa is the founder of Wat Suan Mokkhabalaram The Garden of Liberation found in Chaiya subdistrict of Suratthani in Thailand’s south, just north of Phuket Island. He is well known for avoiding “Bangkok Buddhism” and pursuing his own path by directly studying Buddhist scripts written in Pali and Sanskrit. Buddhadasa had many followers around the world at the time of his death in 1993. His temple is still open to the public, and you can still attend 10-day meditation retreats there. For more info on meditation retreats see here.
