Topic:

‘SAMVEGA:
Pandit goes with the Flaw’

The idea of ‘Samvega’ is central to all religion, and all mystics of different kinds. It means the ‘shaking’ or waking up to the mystery of what actually is. Many people don’t get it: Why not just eat drink and be merry before you die? But for many, this just avoids the nature of your own being.

You don’t have to be Buddhist. Your interest might be academic, might come from scratching your head about Thai culture, or come from meditation experiences. These dharma elements will be presented in an accessible manner. 


The Speaker:

pandit-monk-thailand

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.


Getting there:

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.
