Content / Description

Talk given to monks. Being a new monk, accepting comments/remarks/advice gratefully, always doing things the same way, training of a bhikkhu is like taming a wild elephant, handling dukkha vedana/painful feeling in the body. 5 khandhas, anicca/dukkha/anatta, respect/generosity/gratitude liaking in westeners, "compared to Thais, we are 2nd class people", learn by trial and error, being disheartened or being "a wise crack" are both terminal illnesses for the practice, forget about pride and nationality, respect is highly valued in heaven, Buddha's prophecies.
