Available books on monastic lifestyle

Postby Nibbida » Tue Apr 13, 2010 8:38 pm

A student of mine is looking to do a paper on monastic lifestyle and meditation. I distinctly remember seeing a book online in PDF format on this topic, but I can't remember where. Can anyone recommend a resource like this?

Thank you. :anjali:

"And so, because this Teaching is so different from what Westerners are accustomed to, they will try to adapt the Teaching to their own framework. What they need to learn to do is not to adapt the Teaching to their own point of view but to adapt their own point of view to the Teaching. This is called saddhá, or faith, and it means giving oneself to the Teaching even if the Teaching is contrary to one’s own preconceived notions of the way things are."- Ven Bodhesako

Dear friends,

I don't want to waste a new thread on this, so I am posting a related question here. I'd be interested in online-resources about personal experiences of people who have ordained in Thailand. If you have read "Phra Farang" by Phra Peter Pannapadipo, you know what I have in mind. Any blogs, websites, or online reports (English, German, Spanish). I'd be most obliged.

Thank you and Cheers,
Thomas
