Samadhi Course

————-

Background : The course is for beginners, who need an introduction to a Samadhi practice based on a technique of reciting in mind ‘Buddho’ together with concentrating on breaths. The practice has for generations been handed down in Thai society. Thai forest monks have mostly gotten familiar with it, because it is a best way to create a mind power for safety and mental strength in dwelling in a dangerous forest. Today, lay people are busied with daily jobs, the practice has been applied for them and now, to increasing practitioners, known as ‘easy but beneficial’. On this occasion, you are invited to attend the course, lasting 3 days and without any charges except 200 baht for fee only.

Date : 1-3 April, 2011.

Application Period : Now until March 25.

Instructor: Khantibalo Bhikkhu, the Director of the Willpower Institute, Wat Dhammamongkol, Sukhumvit 101, and Dr. Banjob Bannaruji, the Director of the Spiritual Development Institute, the World Buddhist University. They experienced the Samadhi practice with Phra Dhammamongkolnan (Luang Phor Viriyang), who was once a student of Luang Poo Man, a best wellknown forest monk in northeastern part of Thailand, and who is now regarded as the great Samadhi master in Canada, where he succeeds in teaching meditation that leads to the constant increasing of new practitioners.

Place : the World Buddhist University Building.
