Buddhist psychologists, Buddhists, psychologists or heck, anyone else …. welcome to join the Buddhist Psycho discussion/coffee and other shenanigans Monday lunch time 14th Feb:
Message from Dr Holly, the original Buddhist psycho!
Just a reminder that the next meeting will be on February 14 at 2 p.m. at Baan Aree. There’s a good map somewhere on the littlebang.org site. Some of us will probably get there early to take advantage of the veggie food court and to check out a place to congregate.
Last month’s meeting was excellent. . . we began by a review of the topics we’ve touched on so far and proceeded to Buddhadasa’s Heartwood of the Bodhi Tree, Part One. Emptiness. But how to get it? Read Part Two. Or bring your opinions & suggestions.
Hope to see everyone there!
Indeed there is a map on Little Bangkok Sangha blog :
Baan Aree Library is a thriving dhamma site with library, meeting hall, and lots of excellent events organised in Thai. The Library itself is open daily from 9 am – 7 pm and has a few books in English, including much of the Tripitaka (Scriptures). The new Dhamma Hall is airconditioned and set in the attractive grounds, with many very reasonably priced vegetarian food stalls open in the daytime.
We owe a debt of gratitude to Baan Aree as the place where our Little Bangkok Sangha first started with the generous offering of great facilities free of charge for the English speaking community in Bangkok. Our group would not have gotten going otherwise.
Baan Aree has regular Dhamma meetings in Thai which are listed at their Thai website: http://baanaree.net/ .
The Library is directly on the Skytrain line. Go to Ari BTS station and walk back towards the victory monument about 20 meters and you should see the passage way to Baan Aree Library on the right hand side.
Do arrive early and meet with some of the regulars in the coffee shop in the compound. Baan Aree car park is accessible from the rear (Soi Ari 1) where you see the sign for ‘ BANANA FAMILY PARK ‘. Bus routes 8, 28, 29, 38, 54, 63, 74, 77, 108, 157, 177, 502, 503, 509, and 510 all pass by. Get out at Ari BTS Station.

Baan Aree, Bahn Aree, Bahn Ari, Baan Ari are all the same thing – just various transliterations from the Thai. The Skytrain station is usually written ‘Ari’, while the Library itself usually renders it as ‘Baan Aree’ .
