Fisherman pants

Postby vanquisher91 » Sat Jan 08, 2011 8:06 am

I was searching for these on google and came up with a huge list of foreign retailers and have no clue who to buy them from. I was wondering if anyone has bought a pair and if they could recommend a retailer for me? I don't want to spend more than $40 US on them.

Maybe its time to give up fishing and make a greater commitment to Buddhism?

Fisherman pants are popular among meditators as they are very light and thin.

Thai fisherman pants are lightweight unisex trousers that are made very wide in the waist, one size fits all. The additional material is wrapped around the waist and tied to form a belt. They are usually made of cotton or rayon. Although traditionally used by fishermen in Thailand, they have become popular among others for casual, beach, and exercise wear as well as for backpackers and pregnancy.

Thai fisherman pants are nearly identical to the traditional attire of Intha males, who live on Inlay Lake of Myanmar. They are known in Burmese as Shan baun-mi.

The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah

Your own.
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.
