forest monasteries in Myanmar, India, Thailand and Cambodia

Post by Sekha » Sun Mar 07, 2010 4:49 pm

Sorry if the question has been raised already, but can anyone indicate forest monasteries where monks practice sitting meditation seriously (at least 10h a day) and where a westerner could stay for a while to meditate and learn about the monk's life without becoming a monk?

I would be interested about places in Thailand, Myanmar, Cambodia and India.

Thank you :meditate:
