:namaste:
To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With no struggling, no thinking,
the mind, still,
will see cause and effect
vanishing in the Void.
Attached to nothing, letting go:
Know that this is the way
to allay all stress.

- Upasika Kee Nanayan

This talk by Ajahn Amaro is a nice encouragement to use King Bhumibol's life as a source of inspiration.

We near the end of the mourning period, one year on from his death. It's a very touching time for anyone with Thai connections...

Most 24 hour-companies in thailand, closed theselves 10 hour today, because their staffs need to join the funeral.

Amazing! I see the unity of half hundred-million thai-people on the road, today.

Really! thai people in black dress on the road around thailand for our most beloved #KingRama9 cremation ceremony.

The royal cremation ceremony is prepared by thai government almost 1 year, because most thai people very expect for completely perfect funeral cremation that proper to the king's honor.
