  1. Movies About Buddhism

    "Slow down and breathe. This contemplative journey follows in the steps of Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh and is a rare insight into life within a monastic community. The sun rises. Everything is calm and still. Life is beautifully serene as Benedict Cumberbatch’s composed, meditative voice reads an extract from Thich Nhat Hanh’s early journals. So begins Max Pugh and Marc J Francis’ (Black Gold, LFF2006) fascinating and immersive exploration of what it means to devote one’s life to mindfulness. With unprecedented access to the famous secluded monastery of Plum Village in the South West of France, Walk With Me captures the daily routine and rituals of monks and nuns on a quest to develop a deep sense of presence. It is an insightful rumination on the pursuit of happiness, living in the present and our attachment to material things – a welcome remedy to the stresses of city life and a world in turmoil." Laure Bonville, London Film Festival

    Not true. Every TM mantra has a meaning. Here's one source: http://minet.org/www.trancenet.net/secrets/mantras.shtml

  6. Many members have posted to this forum asking about places to learn or practice Buddhist meditation in Thailand. To make it easier to find this info quickly, here's a link to "A Guide to Buddhist Monasteries and Meditation Centres in Thailand": http://www.kammatthana.com/a_guide_to_budd...onasteries_.htm Sponsored by the World Fellowship of Buddhists, the booklet was originally written by an American Buddhist monk living in Thailand (Phra Sunno, aka Jack Kornfield) and has been updated twice by layperson Bill Weir. The last update happened in the late 80s so some of the information is quite out of date. Nevertheless many of the monasteries and centres listed here remain still more or less as described. Here also is a link to Buddhanet's updated list of places to practice in Thailand: Buddhanet Thailand Directory Places are also listed at DhammaWeb.org: DhammaWeb Thailand's own World Fellowship of Buddhists: WFB Dhamma Study Group Around since the 1970s, probably the oldest dhamma discussion group in Bangkok. The group meets every Saturday between 2 and 4pm in Thonburi, and is attended by foreigners as well as Thais. They don't practice formal meditation and the main focus of the discussions is the Abhidhamma Pitaka.
