Monday – weekly meditation

 

MONDAYS

This program has now finished – we will look at restarting a weekly meditation in Nov 2010

Bangkok Meditation Group

Phra Cittasamvaro and Ajahn Kusalo

Every Monday – “Just Meditation” at Ariaysom Villa.

Monday group meditation, open for all, free style – you are welcome to follow your own meditation system, or to get instructions for meditation before or after the group sitting. It’s a nice chance to come and meet/sit together with meditators from all lineages without taking up the whole evening. Most of us regulars are there early, so come along and chat a while in the library before time…

Kindly hosted free of charge by the beautiful Ariyasom Villa, a 10 minute walk from Ploen Chit BTS Station, and led by Phra Cittasamvaro, a British monk.

6:30 pm gather in the Library (some coffee and refreshments served)

before 7 pm go up to the Dhamma Hall

7-7:50 Meditation (simple instructions for any beginners if needed)

In fact, some of us regulars will be there early, and Phra Cittasamvaro will be there from 5pm each week in case there is anyone who would like to talk a little about meditation or other issues beforehand.

There is also be a yoga session before the meditation for those who wish to try it.  The yoga goes from 5:30 to 6:30 pm and is taught by Japanese instructor Natsuko. Inquire at Ariyasom on Mondays.

Directions

Could not be easier – go down Sukhumvit Soi One, right to the end, and Ariyasom is on the left.

    Hi,

    I really enjoyed that first sit last Monday. Thank you so much to Phra Cittasamvaro, to the very generous Ariyasom Villa, and to everyone who was there. Fabulous, Mondays have now become the highlight of the week!

    With palms together,

    Marcus

    Cool – Lots of our group go to Chiang Mai on occasion, so it will be good that they have met you before.

    Hi,

    Sorry, I’ve not been able to make it for the past couple of weeks. I live near Phan Fa Bridge and (though I’ve never much liked going out late) since the Red Shirt rally, getting home in the evening has become even more of a major undertaking. Sorry.

    But I really miss it and would like to attend again soon. Is there a sit next Monday (Songkran)?

    With palms together,

    Marcus

  6. Cittasamvaro says:

    We meet every week, not matter what.

  7. Marcus says:

    That’s good to know! Wonderful!

    (But, unfortunately, I still won’t be able to make it! My apartment is within the Red Shirt area, and last Saturday night I had to cross through first army roadblocks and then Red Shirt barricades to get home, – and then I got tear gassed in my own room! LOL!)

    But your sits starts in just under an hour from now and I’ll sit at exactly the same time too, – thus joining you even if not in the same physical space.

    Wishing you a fruitful sit tonight and with palms together,

    Marcus
