Dhamma Talk in Thai with English translation, with Thai monk and teacher
Phra Ajahn Kosil Paripunno
of Wat Plaina in Pathum Thani Province
Event runs for the whole day, however the English teaching will be in the morning from 9:30am for about two hours, and then a break for lunch. If anyone would like to stay in the afternoon for the meditation sessions (Luang Phor Tien ‘dynamic meditation’ style) you are most welcome and the translator will try to accommodate. Otherwise the afternoon session will be for Thai audience.
Event is free of charge, and there is no need to book in advance. The Dhamma Hall has plenty of space.
Baan Aree is a delightful Dhamma oasis close to the Ari BTS Station. There is a library, Dhamma Hall, ponds, veggie food stalls, coffee shop and more. If you are in Bangkok you should definitely acquaint yourself with this niche.
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.
Baan Aree has regular Dhamma meetings in Thai which are listed at their Thai website: http://baanaree.net/ .
Baan Aree 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.
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.
