Coming to Our Senses and Arriving at Equanimity with Ayyā Dhammadīpā

The Little Bangkok Sangha is inviting you to a Zoom meeting on Monday 13 March 2023 from 6:30 – 08:00 PM Bangkok time.

We are very pleased that Ayyā Dhammadīpā accepted our invitation to give a Dhamma talk. She plans to discuss the Saḷāyatana Vibhaṅga Sutta which deals with the source of emotions, the use of the emotions in the course of the practice, and the ideal emotional state of a person who has completed the path and is fit to teach others.
