“Peace is within oneself to be found in the same place as agitation and suffering. It is not found in a forest or on a hilltop, nor is it given by a teacher. Where you experience suffering, you can also find freedom from suffering. Trying to run away from suffering is actually to run toward it.”

Venerable Ajahn Chah

“The most obvious place we can observe and contemplate the truth of not-self, or anatta, is just with our own breath. Anytime we turn our attention to observe the breath, we can see that it is merely carrying on its function. The breath goes in and then it goes out. It arises, it passes away.”

Venerable Ajahn Anan

“The place of practice lies within oneself. We restrain our body, speech and mind and learn how our lack of mindfulness leads to clinging and from that we suffer. We don’t need to spend too much time looking at or comparing our self with other people. We don’t need to ask other people about the practice all the time, we should ask our self.”

The Happiness of the Dhamma

Whether we recollect our teacher Ajahn Chah, or join in a ceremony to cast a new Buddha statue or meet with friends in the Dhamma, it is the practise of Dhamma that brings us together and brings happiness.

Luang Por Opart

Today we visited Luang Por Opart (Phra Brohmvajarodom) at his monastery Wat Jong Kam. Luang Por sends his blessings to all Buddhists in Thailand and overseas. He will be 90 years old on Magha Puja Day next month and is still healthy and full of energy.
Luang Por kindly offered some relics of the Lord Buddha to be installed in the centre of the new Buddha statue for Bodhipala Monastery in Adelaide. He also named the statue as “Phra Maha Sakyawongsamuni” which translates as “The Great Sage of the Sakyans”.
