Pandit Bhikkhu turns 21 for the second time this life!
Monks count their ‘birth’ day from the day they are ‘born’ into the holy life (ordination). Last time I was 21 was 27 years ago, which is about the time I got into dhamma and meditation. It cast me into a life path the keenest sighted teachers and family would not have suspected – fetching up as a Buddhist monk in a temple a few hours from Bangkok. What did those years of renunciation, meditation and white rice for breakfast teach me?
All delivered with clear articulation and vivid English.
Presenting is the little Bangkok Sangha organiser Pandit Bhikkhu – a British born monk, ordained in 1996 in Thailand. He finished a degree in psychology, and one day will finish his Masters Thesis in Buddhist Studies, at Mahaculalongkorn University.
You are guaranteed crisp clear English, and a light hearted approach to this deep topic. Some past talks of Pandit Bhikkhu are on the Youtube Channel here.
Please follow the map. It is VERY precise. It is easy to find: there are only one or two turns depending on which direction you are coming from. It is an 11 minute walk from Asoke BTS and even closer to Sukhumvit MRT
Go down Sukhumvit 23 to the first four way intersection. Turn right, and then turn right again at the end of the road.
Or just ask the motorcycles inside Sukhumvit 23 – they know the way.
A few tips:
- Don’t ask locals or taxi drivers the way – they will not know the Rojana Centre, and will send you somewhere else instead. They will all know Sukhumvit 23, so go there and find your own way.
- Follow the map – plenty of landmarks are shown and it it extremely precise!
- In Thai the centre is known as Rojanatam
- Quite a few other foreigners will be heading there at the same time.
