Don’t create an image in your mind of Buddhism being just about rituals and ceremonies. Buddhism is not just about rituals and ceremonies. If we study the truth of the Buddhist teachings, we’ll see that actually Buddhism is a field of study about how to develop our mind so that it can be free of suffering. Of course, there are rituals like bowing, flowers, ceremonies and all these different types of things. Yet the essence of Buddhism is about how ... Read More
Freedom from Suffering

Freedom from Suffering

We study the Dhamma so that we can free ourselves from suffering. The highest goal in our practice is to free our mind from suffering; otherwise, we are drowning in suffering for all time. All of those who have never had the fortune to listen to the Buddha’s teachings are stuck in suffering forever. The most we can do is relieve suffering from time to time. For example, when we are hungry, we go to eat to relieve the suffering ... Read More

Regarding the fourth point, we want to do what we set out to do, ... Read More
To See the Truth

To See the Truth

When we watch the mind correctly, we will see whatever arises as it really is. We will see the true nature of body and mind. We will see that they are not us. We will keep seeing the truth of body and mind until we become dispassionate to their constant flux, their insubstantially, their suffering nature. We will release attachment to them, be liberated and know that liberation has taken place. What will we be liberated from? We will ... Read More
The Path to Enlightenment II

The Path to Enlightenment II

The only path to freedom from suffering is the Noble Eightfold Path, or morality, concentration and wisdom. In brief it is mindfulness practice, or constant observation of one's body and mind, until the mind gets insight into the truth that this body and mind are the root of all suffering. Only then will the mind eradicate craving, clinging (intense craving), the mental process of becoming (mental formation), rebirth (acquisition of sense-organs), and become liberated ... Read More

A Brief Guideline for Practicing Dhamma

Many friends come to practice Dhamma with me. I have seen some common problems that incur when they set out to practice. Some are afraid that they will not be able to practice Dhamma correctly if they are not with me. The Bangkok folks are more at ease because they know where to find me; however, my friends living abroad and upcountry are more concerned because of the distance. They asked for a brief guideline with clear instructions on how ... Read More
