Weekdays 21.00 to 21.45 Bangkok Time
As people begin to respond to the new conditions created by the Covid 19 virus, there are many wonderful opportunities springing up to meditate with larger, online communities lead by very experienced teachers.
One of these is the regular weekday meditations being offered by Gil Fronsdal, the founder and a co-guiding teacher at the Insight Meditation Center in Redwood City, California and the Insight Retreat Center in Santa Cruz, California.
Every evening—Monday through to Friday—Gil is offering a partially guided half hour sit live on Youtube, followed by a 15 minute dhamma talk. Gil is an excellent teacher of both meditation and the Dhamma, so while the Little Bangkok Sangha is unable to meet, we would like to encourage you to continue your Monday night meditation practice (and maybe other nights too) with Gil.
Monday to Friday
21.00 to 21.30: Sitting – partially guided meditation
21.30 to 21.45: Short Dhamma talk
You can join Gil Fronsdal here:
It is recorded so you can catch up on YouTube later if you need to.
Gil has been teaching since 1990 and has practiced Zen and Vipassana since 1975. He has a Ph.D. in Buddhist Studies from Stanford. Gil is a husband and father of two boys.

These talks are offered free of charge, but the Insight Meditation Center is dependent on dana (the Pali word for generosity), so any donations you can make online (see link above) will be well used.
We hope you and your families are all staying well. We will be letting you know about other ways of practicing in the coming weeks. We’d love to know how you are, and how these strange times are impacting you and your practice, so let us know by posting below.
