Hi Retro

Since I've just jointed the board,
I found that it hard for me to find
the English word that fit to the meaning we use
in Thai or Pali.

Using word Jitta's action may not correct
"Phenomenal" is more suite.

Welcome, Thai_Theravada

If you know the Pali terms you might find it useful to look up the translations and summaries in, for example Ven Nyanatiloka's excellent dictionary:
http://what-buddha-said.net/library/Bud ... ict.n2.htm

E.g. http://what-buddha-said.net/library/Bud ... .htm#citta

Greetings Thai_Theravada,

Feel free to use any Pali words you know.

We may know them already, or if not, you give us a valuable learning opportunity to look them up in a Buddhist Dictionary like the one Mike referenced.

Metta,
Retro. :)

Here you will find an English translation of the text "For You the Newcomer" (PDF) by Ajahn Pramote, a Thai meditation teacher who is following the style of Cittanupassana very much like Shwe Oo Min in Burma.
