Great resource. Thank you Bhante.

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

Wow, that's a lot of material!

Thanks, Bhante.

Highly informative! Thanks, bhante. I have a group of Thai friends here, in Fukuoka. I was surprised (initially) to learn how common ordination is for young men. Would be great if we had that for young people (like my sons) in Japan....
"As Buddhists, we should aim to develop relationships that are not predominated by grasping and clinging. Our relationships should be characterised by the brahmaviharas of metta (loving kindness), mudita (sympathetic joy), karuna (compassion), and upekkha (equanimity)."
