Hi Everyone,
are there many theravadan monasteries or centers in north east america that have volunteer work study programs? thank you, metta, Befriend
when walking say to yourself "i am walking" when riding in a car say to yourself "i am sitting in a seat riding in a car" make sure to be concious of the statement, use your intelligence to simply comprehend it and in my experience this is the best way to be mindful in daily life.
