Our beloved Ajahn Brahm turns 70 this year on 7th August. You know he loves telling stories, some funny, some poignant … all inspiring. Now is your chance to share YOUR inspiring stories as part of his birthday celebration. Tell us about your encounter with Ajahn Brahm and his teachings. How have he inspired you? Did he touch your heart or changed your outlook on life? Perhaps his jokes brightened your day. Or his teachings shone a light when everything seems so dark?

If you express yourself best through poems, we would love to receive them too. Or if you are an audio or visual-type, share an audio or video recording with us. These stories are beautiful gifts to Ajahn Brahm. Your story may also inspire others in this journey of life.
