Ajahn Chah Facebook page

Post by bodom » Sat Jul 15, 2017 10:24 am

Hi all,

For anyone here who uses Facebook i have created a new page dedicated to the Venerable Ajahn Chah and his teachings. I will be posting quotes and pictures of this great meditation master and going through every available translation online. So if anyone would like a break from the negativity on social media and is a fan of the Venerables teachings please feel free to check it out.

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 mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

- Ud 3.5


"Dont send the mind outside. Watch the mind right at the mind."

Thanks Bhante. I followed the page for a while but there only seems to be any activity every few weeks or so. I plan to post daily.
