Thai Buddhism...

I can't recall having seen this website mentioned at Dhamma Wheel, not to say that it hasn't, so would just like to offer it to those interested in Thai Buddhism...it's lengthy, detailed, and (pretty, in my view) informative...

Great resource. Thank you Bhante.

:anjali:
The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah

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)."
