Hi Christopher,

Sorry for the late reply.

The "Thamma" in "Thammachart" is the same as the the Thai word for Dhamma.
Dhamma = Tham (ธรรม) - also spelt Thamma (ธรรมะ)
Nature = Thammachart (ธรรมชาติ)

In the talk "Thammachart" is used to refer to the natural world/nature ( no hidden meanings if that is what you mean? )

The translation is not word for word in parts - but seems ok.

Kind regards,

Ben

"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)."

Hope its okay if I bump this thread alive again. I started a Dharma themed page on FB awhile back and people seem to really appreciate Ajahn Chah's . Will make use of some of the quotes shared here.

It is abundantly clear while reading through the discourses of Venerable Ajahn Chah , that he was living Dhamma , and had mastered and perfected the Noble Eight Fold path to its very pinnacle .

Sometime ago i came across knowing about the difficult last years that Venerable Ajan Chah , went through . As i walked down a strewn garden path , recollecting that what i had read , there was salt trickling down the eyes , the drops were not due to any sadness or pain in knowing this , but rather a confidence in the Noble Eight Fold Path , and the trail blazing life lived by the Venerable One . Unshakeable is the confidence of the Triple Gem .

It is said , Wisdom is to know things in different ways , all the gem studded discourses of the Venerable Ajahn Chah , point out such .

The Path of Dhamma

The path of Dhamma is no picnic . It is a strenuous march steeply up the hill . If all the comrades desert you , Walk alone ! Walk alone ! with all the Thrill !!

An interesting account of living with Ajahn Chah as a 12 year old novice:

http://www.abhayagiri.org/reflections/a ... g-por-chah

“Don't view your inner world with pessimism.
But also don't just view your inner world with optimism.
See the world in-line with what is true
because this world has both day and night.
View the world so as to see the benefits of both sides.
That, is Right View (Sammaditthi).”
