Re: meditation retreat Thailand

That actually sounds perfectly structured for someone who already has done a few retreats and simply needs Practce time. It's what most of my retreats are like, though I do sometimes attend mure structured retreats. However, I would have hoped that the organisers would assess the needs of participa...

Re: meditation retreat Thailand

Dear All, Would anyone be able to recommend a female only meditation retreat in Thailand please ? I am looking to go there in mid September, no more than five days.

Re: Retreats in Thailand

Wat Chom Tong, while good-intentioned, has some structural and instructional issues in its international department (from my limited perspective, of course). During short-term residence and practice, I experienced the gradual development of satipatthana-vipassana in the style of Mahasi Sayadaw, an e...

I have previously practiced in Thai, Korean, and Taiwanese t...

Retreats in Thailand

I'm curious if anyone could recommend (preferably drawing on first-hand experience) any retreats in Thailand. For context, I'm a practitioner of 12 years and have spent five months on monastic retreat in Asia, including 23 days in Thailand at Wat Chom Tong. I did not resonate with that style (derive...

Re: Total number of suttas in the Pali Canon

I read that there are 34 suttas in the Digha Nikaya and 152 in the Majjhima Nikaya. I don't have the print copies of the Samyutta Nikaya and Anguttara Nikaya here with me but seem to recall that the number of suttas was mentioned near the beginning of the Bhikkhu Bodhi translations. Would anyone hap...

Re: Pali pronunciation of Thanissaro

So it seems like Thanissaro sounds like tawny-sorrow (pardon my sounding it out) unless I misheard. Thank you.

Total number of suttas in the Pali Canon

Does anyone have a tally of the total number of suttas in the Pali Canon? How about in the first four Nikayas? Thank you.

Pali pronunciation of Thanissaro

I had a quick question about Pali pronunciation. How would one pronounce "thanissaro" as in the case of Thanissaro Bhikkhu? Thanks in advance.
