Pittaya Wong or Pittaya Tisuthiwongse (Peter) is a Thai Buddhist. He was born at Bangkok Christian Hospital on 6thDecember 1975. In his younger years, he had been educated at reputable Catholic Schools since grade 1 to grade 12 (Assumption College, Thonburi and Assumption Commercial College, Bangkok, respectively). However, his parents had cultivated Buddhism deeply into his heart 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, the origin of Dhammakaya Meditation tradition, since his childhood.
After Pittaya completed grade 12 in Thailand, he furthered his education in the U.S.A. and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics at the University of Washington, Seattle in 1998. Thereafter, Pittaya applied to become a fulltime staff of branches of Dhammakaya Temple in the U.S.A. with a strong determination to pursue a spiritual life. A couple of years later, Pittaya started to develop mental disorder from schizophrenia which caused him to return to Thailand for periodic 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 and a published academic thesis, but he finally returned his Master’s Degree diploma to his scholarship provider to prevent possible disputes.
In term of working life, since 1995, Pittaya had worked for Dhammakaya Temple / Foundation for many years, either as a volunteer or fulltime staff, but he decided to resign his membership and discipleship in 2012 in order to run his own projects by collaborating with meditation masters of Wat Paknam Temple and other branches of Wat Paknam such as Wat Luang Phor Sodh Dhammakayaram and Suan Kaew Meditation Center in Rajaburi Province, Thailand. As such, Pittaya formally applied to become a registered member of Wat Paknam Alumni [Disciple] Association and became an active devout of Wat Paknam as well as other branches of Wat Paknam as the aforesaid. (Dhammakaya Temple/Foundation are not officially recognized as a branch of Wat Paknam in Bangkok).
For more than a decade of Pittaya’s suffering from schizophrenia symptom, he told his psychiatrist that his ‘good side’ and ‘bad side’ kept arguing and competing each other. Pittaya has endured until the ‘good side’ finally ‘prevails’. Hence, with such overcoming and good knowledge and understanding in 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, Dhammotronics, Dhammonomics, Pittaya’s Translation & Interpretation Theorem, Pittaya’s Evolutionary Theory, quotes, articles, commentaries, publications, translations, interpretations, inventions, symbolic drawings, and innovations which are made available onwww.meditation101.org.
Soon after Pittaya earned his Master’s Degree in 2012, he entered an ordination to become 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 monkhood, and he returned home in Bangkok to take care of his aging parents. Although Pittaya lives as a secular, he accepts the Gold Tara ethics and prefers continuing his celibacy practice throughout his life, since he was born until the present, similar to what a Buddhist monk would do with a belief that sexual relationship is ‘unclean.’
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 all over the world in order to promote peace and harmony among humankind as a non-profit activity.
For myself, I aim towards selfly cultivation.
For others, I aim towards selfless devotion.
