The Novice Who Could Remember his Past Life

At Luang Pu Mun Bhūridatta's funeral in 1950, one of Luang Pu Mun's great disciples met a teenaged novice who could remember his previous life as a monk – and everything that happened in between. He questioned the novice about it and later wrote the whole account down himself. Perhaps he considered it important as a counter to the growing ideas about focusing on Dhamma solely with regard to this life, but he never published this account. It is presented here under a guise of slight anonymity, translated by A. Bhikkhu.
