I had dreams of walking across Thailand in monk robes sixteen years ago. Maybe someday I will do that.

Thai Forest Monastry belong the Theravada school in isolated locations.
Really great to practise meditation and, contemplation on the Dhamma teachings
The monastry library are stuff with loads of Dhamma books to keep one's mind stable and calm

Dear Dhamma Friends,
I like to discuss on the last precepts of the 5 precepts which is intoxication.
The underlying of this precept is the consequences that the intoxication will give rise to loosing our sati / mindfulness.
Question is whether 1 or 2 pints would break the precept
And the reason for this ' defilement ' is for a domestic cause of catching up with a family member.
Appreciate your Dhamma insight

I'm not sure what you mean by the family member issue, but yes, I think "one or two pints" would break the precept. Note that the precept is not about losing one's mindfulness, but about consuming that which is a cause of losing mindfulness. It's generally considered better to draw the line at zero alcohol, then there is no room for negotiation and self-deception.

Well replied my Dhamma friend and thank you.
The prohibition was not included in the very first place as a precept.
Reckon a lot of Bikkus then went over overboard that its included as a precept.
However, we should know the line ourselves.
In a wedding or some special occasion for example...whereby everyone is offered a champagne to toast.
I reckoned giving grace to that 1 glass toast would not be considered breaking the precept .. even for a sip.
Please advise Friend
