Pittaya Wong or Pittaya Tisuthiwongse (Peter) is a Thai Buddhist. He was born at Bangkok Christian Hospital on 6thDecember 1975. In his younger years, since grade 1 to grade 12, he had been educated at reputable Catholic Schools (Assumption College, Thonburi and Assumption Commercial College, Bangkok, respectively). However, his parents had cultivated Buddhism deeply into his heart since he was young by teaching him how to recite the Buddhist chanting and make merits at Buddhist temples. As a result, Pittaya had joined his family to make merits at Wat Paknam Temple in Bangkok since his childhood.
After Pittaya completed grade 12 in Thailand, he furthered his education in the U.S.A. and earned a B.A. in Economics at the University of Washington, Seattle in 1998. A couple of years later on, Pittaya started to have mental disorder from schizophrenia which caused him to return to Thailand for psychiatric treatment. However, as a schizophrenia patient, Pittaya was able to continue his post graduate education in Thailand and earned a Master's Degree in Translation Science from Thammasat University, a prominent university in Bangkok, with the GPA of 3.76, but he finally returned his Master’s Degree diploma to his scholarship provider to prevent possible disputes.
Since 1995, Pittaya had worked for Dhammakaya Temple / Foundation for many years, but he finally quit membership and discipleship in 2012 in order to run his own projects by cooperating with meditation masters of Wat Paknam Temple and other branches of Wat Paknam such as Wat Luang Phor Sodh Dhammakayaram and Suan Kaew Meditation Centre in Rajaburi Province, Thailand. As such, Pittaya formally applied to become a registered member of Wat Paknam Alumni [Disciple] Association and became an active disciple of Wat Paknam as well as other branches of Wat Paknam as the aforesaid. (Dhammakaya Temple/Foundation is not formally recognized as a branch of Wat Paknam in Bangkok, the headquarter of Dhammakaya Meditation Tradition.)
After years of Pittaya’s suffering from schizophrenia symptom which he told his psychiatrist that his ‘good side’ and ‘bad side’ kept arguing and competing each other in his mind until the ‘good side’ finally ‘prevails’. Thereafter, with such schizophrenia symptom and good knowledge and understanding about Buddhism, Pittaya started to discover and develop many incredible and supramundane expressions on Buddhist teachings and understandings such as the Equation of Time, Time Machine Theorem, Pittaya’s Translation & Interpretation Theorem, Pittaya’s Evolutionary Theory, quotes, articles, commentaries, theory, publication, translation, interpretation, inventions, discoveries, symbolic drawings, and innovations which are made available on the website, www.meditation101.org, in the section of 'Articles' and ‘Pittaya’s Dhamma Squre.’
After his graduation, he became a Buddhist monk at Wat Paknam in Bangkok given the monastic name 'Dhammavidhu', having His Holiness Somdet Phramaharatchamangkhalachan (Chuang Varapunyo), Pali Scholar Level 9, the former acting Supreme Patriarch of Thailand and the abbot of Wat Paknam Temple, as his preceptor. Pittaya spent around six months in the monastic community. Thereafter, he returned home to live with his family in Bangkok. Although Pittaya has lived as a secular, he prefers practicing celibacy throughout his life since he was born until the present.
From his experience in the monkhood and Dhamma practicing & learning, he authored books and articles related to Buddhism as well as translating several books and articles on Dhammakaya Meditation from Thai to English with the aim to share Buddhist teachings and Dhammakaya Meditation to English speakers in order to promote peace and harmony among humankind.
