Here is a short excerpt about Luang Por Anek:

Luang Por Anek Yasadinno, the abbot of Wat Pah Sai Ngam was born in 1946 in Det Udom District, Ubon province, Thailand. Luang Por Anek received ordination as a Buddhist monk on June 5, 1967 at his local village monastery. In 1968, he moved to Wat Nong Pah Pong and practiced under the tutelage of Luang Por Chah Subhaddo. After training himself for many years under the guidance of Luang Por Chah, he was eventually entrusted with the position of abbot of Wat Pah Sai Ngam which he built from ground up and where he has lived from its very first day until now. Since 1991, Luang Por Anek has established many social welfare projects in Thailand. Some of their projects include: buffalo and cow welfare fund; community welfare Dhamma Compassion fund and Sangha medical fund.

A short biography of Luang Por Liem

Luang Por Liem Thitadhammo, 75 years old this year, is a Buddhist monk in the Thai Forest Tradition. After higher ordination at 20 years of age, Luang Por practised in several village monasteries throughout the Northeast until he joined the Forest Tradition in 1969 and took up the training under Luang Pu Chah. After Luang Pu Chah became severely ill in 1982, Luang Por Liem was entrusted to lead the monastery – Wat Nong Pah Pong. The Sangha of Wat Nong Pah Pong then appointed Luang Por Liem to take over the abbotship after Luang Pu Chah’s health worsened. Luang Por Liem was also given an honorary monastic title by His Majesty the King of Thailand for a second time. He is presently known as Tan Chao Khun Pra Phrarachapavanavikrom.
