Before the Buddha achieved full enlightenment , he was a Bodhisattva. Bodhisattva practices are the perfection of the six paramitas, especially the paramita of wisdom, with the foundation being the Bodhicitta.

The Bodhisattva path includes the qualities to be able to actively benefit all sentient beings without any hesitation or fear. Rinpoche will explain the benefits of living the Bodhisattva path, and the essential characteristics of of a Bodhisattva.


Bodhgaya Hall is in the offices of DMG – right next to the Chit Lom BTS Station (map below), level 22. – and very easy to get to. It is a very nice location, easy to get to and being high up it is cool and quiet. The Event is free of charge and there is no advance booking required. There is a nice coffee shop with great views over the city next to the meeting hall. 



Bodhgaya Hall is in the offices of DMG Books, and is used regularly by a large Thai group of meditators. It is an excellent facility, and very convenient on the skytrain line, Chit Lom Station. The Thai group meets there every Tuesday and Wednesday. 

The address is Amarin Plaza, Level 22, 496-502 Ploenchit Road, Lumpini, Pathumwan, Bangkok 10330 

Get out at Chit Lom Skytrain Station, and take the short walk to Amarin Tower. From the ground floor, take the lift up to the 22nd floor. DMG is on the right hand side on the 22nd floor, and there is a nice coffee shop there, so you can arrive early for events and meet some of the regulars. 

You cannot get up to the 22nd floor via the lift in the Amarin plaza itself. You must go to the lifts on the ground floor, to access the office block above the Amarin Plaza
