Greetings from Bangkok!

Postby mintini » Thu Jul 22, 2010 7:29 am

Hi There All Buddhist Practicing Fellows,
I'm a Thai judge from Bangkok. I'll be a monk next month. All I can share with you all is, if you lucky enough to understand Thai, to suggest you to listen to Ajan Pramote at http://www.wimutti.net and http://www.fungdham.com/sound/pramote.html
Ajan Pramote is a very decisive monk who teaches people and his apprentices to read or observe their own body and mind at present with neutrality (Do observe your body and mind without using your imagination, but with real consciousness every second of your life.) Then, your "self" will be quick enough to understand everything happening in your "self." After that, you will be skillful enough to attain "Intelligence." This so-called intelligence will tell you about the ultimate truth of nature. Eventually, you all will discover the tri-appearance noble of nature, i.e., instability, undurability, and uncontrollability. That all things happen for a reason (causation). That all existing things will remain or age. That all things will in the end die. When you attain enlightenment, you will be able to let go of your body and mind. Your body and mind will no longer be attached to you. Sufferings can harm your body and mind, but it can't harm you. You'll be eternally free from all secular attachments. I hope I explained it correctly. If not, I hope you understand even a glimpse of this.
Thank you for reading and sorry for my bad English.
Judge Mint

Thank you, Retro. This forum rocks! Too bad I just discovered this board whereas I'll be ordained very soon and depart from this secular world. In any event, I wish you all ultimately discover the true meaning of life for which you all have been seeking.
Do Practice Well,
Judge Mint
P.S. Practicing is not only about meditation, but also using your "observer" to observe your "observed" every second of your life.

Welcome mintini! Best wishes to you!

How cold is it at night on the mountains in Petchabun? It looks very nice up there, maybe good for tudong in the future...

Is Ajahn Amnat Obhaso teaching the monks regularly?
