No Dhamma talks this time, just some short instructions/methods to use, and then meditation.
Beginners are welcome, and there will be chance either before or after for some direct Q&A about meditation with British monk Phra Cittasamvaro
Free of charge, and in English.
This week – practising detachment (or training in ‘letting go’ so that you can meditate more quietly)
6:30 gather and refreshments in the Library
before 7 pm – go up to the Dhamma Hall
7:00 short talk/instruction on meditation
7:15 – 7:50 meditation
7:50 finish and leave for home, or hang out a bit longer with the Sangha – up to you.
There is a good Palestinian restaurant nearby for those who’d like to go eat and hang out a bit longer.
We’re thinking of making this a regular thing. Since the venue is so nice, and there’s a few cheap places to eat around nearby (not to mention the fabulous vegetarian food in the Ariyasom restaurant), we can meet weekly if people are interested. The idea will not be for Dhamma talks – we’ll do that intermittently too – but to keep the feeling of Sangha, and keep up with the meditation.
So input and suggestions will be welcome. Should we add in chanting? Or the ‘taking refuge’ ceremony?
Most Little Bangkok Sangha readers will know the beautiful Ariyasom Villa. If you have not been yet, Ariyasom is situated at the end of Sukhumvit Soi one, less than a 10 minute walk from Ploen Chit BTS Station.
