Someone at Wat Phra dhammakaya sent me a voice message the other night, around 11pm, of thousands of people at the temple chanting together. She said she thought there were around 10,000 people there chanting. They were trying to reach 7 million rounds of the Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta that night. Even at 11pm the temple is still awake and practicing. :twothumbsup:

Latest Dhammakaya news:

The DSI (Department of Special Investigation) suspends two officers over 40 million baht (1,130,000 $) bribe in connection with the Wat Dhammakaya embezzlement scandal of the Klongchan Credit Union Cooperative.

That must be petty cash for them. :rolleye:

If everyone in the world has the same goal
or dream of seeing true peace in the world, a
world with no borders, no soldiers, no police,
a world where people have only love and good
wishes for each other, true peace will not be difficult to achieve.
True world peace begins with
inner peace, when our minds are still and calm.
Once everyone can do this, true world peace can
happen at this very moment. To share in the same dream, we must learn
and experience meditation altogether. However,
people cannot communicate effectively with
one another yet. There are many barriers in
our communication, such as custom, tradition,
culture, language and geography. If we can
overcome these barriers and communicate to the
world about how to still the mind, we will have
true world peace. This is not just a dream, but a
determination to make it a reality. - Luang Phaw Dhammajayo

Former follower recalls his “riches to rags” story after being inducted to Dhammakaya sect

Something truly educational:

Not sure why the photo link is broken there, but I found it plus other photos of the guy here: http://www.naewna.com/local/248498

Gutsy fellow. Hope others like him will be motivated to speak out.

I do wish they'd hurry up and get this Dhammajayo business sorted out soon. Just recently my wife has taken to chanting whenever she can. And she's got hold of some annoying YT video from Dhammakaya with chanting at twice the normal speed. Sounds like Pinkie & Perky chanting. It's driving me bloody mad! Apparently it's necessary to get as many chanting rounds in per hour because this is going to help their beloved abbot! (Or is it ex-abbot?). My mind boggles at some of the utter tosh they're being fed by the temple and its disciples.
