A forum for beginners and members of other Buddhist traditions to ask questions about Theravāda (The Way of the Elders). Responses require moderator approval before they are visible.
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...http://thaibuddhism.net

Wow, that's a lot of material!
"The serene and peaceful mind is the true epitome of human achievement."-- Ajahn Chah, Living Dhamma
"To reach beyond fear and danger we must sharpen and widen our vision. We have to pierce through the deceptions that lull us into a comfortable complacency, to take a straight look down into the depths of our existence, without turning away uneasily or running after distractions." -- Bhikkhu Bodhi

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....http://thaibuddhism.net/page7.htm
"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)."
