The heart of the path is so simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice.

Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing.

Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this-just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle.

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.
