Thai Buddhism...

Postby appicchato » Sun Jun 06, 2010 10:24 am

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.

“What should be done for his disciples out of compassion by a teacher who seeks their welfare and has compassion for them, that I have done for you, bhikkhus. There are these roots of trees, these empty huts. Meditate, bhikkhus, do not delay or else you will regret it later. This is our instruction to you.” - MN 19

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)."
