Re: Questions About the Thai Forest Tradtion

Thanks for the replies. Thanissaro gives a day-long talk on the Thai Forest Tradition that I would highly recommend. https://www.audiodharma.org/series/16/talk/5996/ Thank you for the link. So Thanissaro Bhikkhu teachers the same Meditation as Ajahn Lee Dhammadaro? How would this method differ from...

Re: How does one observe Anatta ?

The way I understand you have to observe all three (Anicca, Dukkha and Anatta) to realise Anatta. An excerpt from Bhikkhu Bodhi: When impermanence is seen, insight into the other two marks closely follows. Since the aggregates are constantly breaking up, we cannot pin our hopes on them for any last...

Re: Is this a real Buddha quote? How to deal with loneliness?

Bodom, I thought the five remembrances were taught within the context of samvega spiritual urgency. Seeing that one is subject to aging sickness and death and kamma one should be ardent and do much good because death can come anytime. I may be wrong.

Re: Is this a real Buddha quote? How to deal with loneliness?

Bodom, thank you for the reply. Is it wrong of me according to the dhamma to worry about a future without my mother?
