Hi, might be here for some time - Gwyddion

Postby Gwyddion » Tue Nov 06, 2012 9:14 pm

Hi everyone - looking for a decent forum to discuss Buddhism - I'm living in a Theravada temple at the moment as a lay-person - going to become a monk in the Thai tradition - not a forest monk though, not yet at least. Got loads of questions, hopefully a few answers to share too.

Metta to you all

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

Since the abbot of the is from Wat Mahādhātu, am I right in thinking that he teaches the Mahāsi Vipassanā Satipaṭṭhāna method?

Greetings Gwyddion and welcome to Dhamma Wheel!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Welcome Gwyddion!

:anjali:
To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

The temple is not called buddhavihara anymore it is actually the representative temple of wat mahathat in England and is now called way mahathat itself. Vippassana is not a major practice at this temple in kings Bromley, but it is my personal specialism despite this. The shari'a specialism seems to be pali and chanting.
