Right View in the Thai Forest Tradition

Postby Tom » Tue Nov 27, 2012 7:40 am

Are there any dhamma talks/teachings by Thai Forest teachers that have the possibility of helping me become established in Right View? I'd greatly appreciate any responses.

Try Thanissaros teachings http://www.dhammatalks.org/
or the forest sanghas teachings http://forestsanghapublications.org/downloadListen.php
there is also the Suttas
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

Thanissaro on right view... http://www.dhammatalks.org/Archive/TheE ... 20View.mp3

Ajahn Amaro: I'm right, you're wrong. Attachment to views and the Buddha's path of non contention... http://dharmaseed.org/teacher/4/?page=2
I couldn't find Amaro actually ever talking about right view, it was strange.

I heard he talks about the Eightfold Path in "What is the Middle Way? "

i dont know what this means, taken from ajahn chahs link

"He just listens and then contemplates, giving rise to the right results accordingly.

A wise man should contemplate and see the cause and effect for himself before he believes what he hears

anybody get this part?
to practice patience with others rough speech, perceive there words as only sound, patience is the path to nibbana.
