LocationWat Pa Baan Taad
Content / Description

What is dukkha? What is its cause? What is the path out of dukkha? - Sila, Samadhi, Panna. The 5 precepts, the 8 precepts, effect of alcohol on practice, Avijja is in control, there are 2 voices in our heart, rollercoaster of life, heaven and hell, concentration and one pointedness, stopping thoughts, talking and the ego, accepting the evil within us, reflecting on our actions, sati – the shortcut to Nibbana, deep samadhi – pure knowingness, the present moment – no lonliness, anatta, not believing thoughts.
