We’re glad to be back at Baan Aree Library, where our group began 12 years ago. It is a great venue.

Topics:
  • My Mind’s Such a Sweet Thing :- In Buddhism we separate the mind (buddha nature) from the content of the mind. Seeing the mind without content, reveals the naked mind. Which is ever present. 
  • Ricky Gervais is Wrong About Religion :- what the mystic (meditator) knows that no one else does. It is self evident and can be proven in direct experience.
  • Meditate Because You Want To:- Meditation is not about ‘wellness’ and ‘healing’. These things may be part of the path, but they are not the goal. 
 
Speaker:
Pandit Bhikkhu has been a Buddhist monk for 22 years in Thailand. He has a degree in psychology, and MA in Buddhist Studies. Various media of his are available online. This is the final Rains (3 month period) V. Pandit will be in Thailand. Come join in the live event!
