Available books on monastic lifestyle

Post by Nibbida » Tue Apr 13, 2010 8:38 pm

A student of mine is looking to do a paper on monastic lifestyle and meditation. I distinctly remember seeing a book online in PDF format on this topic, but I can't remember where. Can anyone recommend a resource like this?

Thank you. :anjali:

Dear friends,

I don't want to waste a new thread on this, so I am posting a related question here. I'd be interested in online-resources about personal experiences of people who have ordained in Thailand. If you have read "Phra Farang" by Phra Peter Pannapadipo, you know what I have in mind. Any blogs, websites, or online reports (English, German, Spanish). I'd be most obliged.

Thank you and Cheers,
Thomas
