Venerable Yuttadhammo (formerly Noah Greenspoon) is a Canadian-born Theravada Buddhist monk, ordained in 2001 under the guidance of Venerable Ajaan Tong Sirimangalo of Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Having practicing intensive and daily meditation following the Mahasi Sayadaw tradition since January 2000, he has taught intensive meditation in Thailand, Sri Lanka, USA and Canada since 2003 and gives online teachings via YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/yuttadhammo ) both live and pre-recorded, as well as Dhamma talks in both English and Thai to both intensive meditators and by invitation to the general public. Yuttadhammo studied Sanskrit, Pali and Indian Religion at McMaster University and University of Toronto, formal Thai Dhamma, Abhidhamma and Pali studies at Wat Phradhatu Sri Chom Tong and teaches Pali classes to advanced meditators from time to time.

He has published two books electronically, How To Meditate: A Beginner’s Guide To Peace ( http://www.sirimangalo.org/teachings/how-to-meditate/ ) and Lessons in Practical Buddhism ( http://www.sirimangalo.org/teachings/lessons-in-practical-buddhism/ ).  The former has been translated into several languages including Chinese, Spanish, and Romanian. He has also prepared a Pali Workbook ( http://static.sirimangalo.org/pali/cakkhupala_pali.pdf ) based on the commentary to first verse of the Dhammapada, and is in the process of publishing a Pali study guide based on traditional study methods.
