Writing to Ajahn Brahm

Postby greggorious » Wed Feb 13, 2013 1:47 am

Does anyone know how I'd go about writing to Ajahn Bram? I like his talks and I'm also from the same part of London that he's from, so I get a lot of his dry humour :)
Thanks
"The original heart/mind shines like pure, clear water with the sweetest taste. But if the heart is pure, is our practice over? No, we must not cling even to this purity. We must go beyond all duality, all concepts, all bad, all good, all pure, all impure. We must go beyond self and nonself, beyond birth and death. When we see with the eye of wisdom, we know that the true Buddha is timeless, unborn, unrelated to any body, any history, any image. Buddha is the ground of all being, the realization of the truth of the unmoving mind.” Ajahn Chah

216 Kingsbury Drive
Serpentine 6125
Serpentine
Western Australia

is his monastery's address, and the phone number listed is +61 (0)8 9525 2420 but I'm not sure if he himself ever speaks over the phone. Best bet would be to call and ask where the best place to write is, or to just write to that address and see what happens!
Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.

Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.

His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.
- Lokavipatti Sutta

Stuff I write about things.

He doesn't use email for contacts so you'd have to write to

Plus they get a lot of mail, so don't expect a quick reply. If at all.
I sent them a letter two months ago and they never replied. So I'll go visit in person soon and ask the same question I asked in my letter.
Then,
saturated with joy,
you will put an end to suffering and stress.
