A Tree in a Forest Print E-mail

Introduction

When we have no real home, we're like an aimless wanderer out on the road, going this way for a while and then that way, stopping for a while and then setting off again. Until we return to our real home, whatever we do we feel ill-at-ease, just like somebody who's left his village to go on a journey. Only when he gets home again can he really relax and be at ease.

Nowhere in the world is any real peace to be found. That's the nature of the world. Look within yourself and find it there instead.

With Robes and Bowl: Glimpses of the Thudong Bhikkhu Life Print E-mail

Introduction

The Triple Gem or the Tree Precious Ones are the highest ideals of the Buddhadhamma. To the Lord Buddha, to the Holy Dhamma(Teaching) and to the Noble Sangha (Order of Monks) are given veneration by all Buddhists since they aspire to mould their lives according to the qualities represented by these three ideals.

The Buddha and His Disciples Print E-mail

Introduction

The life of the Buddha is more than an account of one man's quest for and realization of the truth; it is also about the people who encountered that man during his forty-five year career and how their encounter transformed them. If the Buddha's quest and his encounters with others is set against the backdrop of the world in which these events were acted out, a world with its unique customs, its political intrigue and its religious ferment, it becomes one of the most fascinating stories ever told.

Venerable Ajaan Mun’s Practice Print E-mail

Introduction

We are getting near the end of this book, so it is appropriate that we should discuss the methods of practising citta bhāvanā that Venerable Ajaan Mun used, as well as the methods which he used in teaching those fol-lowers of his who went into training under him. This may act as sort of a guide to the way, in the form of a brief summary. But in particular, the way that he himself practised will first be considered, after which, the way he taught his close followers will be described. In this section, the names of the places where he practised and gained results will not be given, because they have already been detailed in his biography. So the following account will only deal with his methods of practising citta bhāvanā and all external phenomena such as contact with Pretas, ghosts, Devaputta, Devatā, Nāgas, Garuḍas, etc., will be omitted as they have already been described.

Forest Path Print E-mail

Introduction

Wat Pa Nanachat has published many books over the years — in English and in Thai — but never a newsletter. This year we decided to mark the twenty-fifth anniversary of a conservative wat by breaking with tradition. So many people contributed to the project however, and with such enthusiasm, that a sambhavesi1 newsletter finally entered the world of print as this 250 page book.
