Dhamma Pioneers is a history of Wat Buddha Dhamma, an early pioneering organisation founded by two renowned teachers, Phra Khantipalo and Ayya Khema. They envisaged a place for westerners to learn Dhamma and practise meditation and the Wat combined monastic life, a retreat centre and a spiritual community.
