世界を周った国々もご紹介するブログ。


テーマ:


Wat Tam Wua Forest Monastery

パーイから車で約2~3時間(バンで1時間半、ローカルバスで3時間)泊り込みで修行ができる。
最初に瞑想するにはうってつけに場所。
何気なく参加した瞑想。
でも、ヴィパッサナー瞑想のように厳しいものではないので、修行というより、瞑想はこんなものというのを学べる感じ。
私は、日本人から説明してもらったり、本を借りたり、瞑想の意義を徐々に習得。
まだよくわかってないので、また来たいと思います。
料金は寄付金です。
他の人達の為にも、余裕があれば、それなりの対価を支払いましょう。
英語ではあるけれど、情報を載せてますのでご覧ください。
素晴らしい環境で、少しでも生きる為の知恵を瞑想から得られると思います。
人生に迷った時、失恋した時、どんな時でも、対処出来るようになると思います。

"人の幸せは自分の幸せでもあるように、常に祈りましょう。
祈りのエネルギーは実証済みです。
祈りも瞑想の一つです。
良いも悪も、すべて思考から始まります。
想いが現実となるのです。"
だから私達は、思考に注意を払わなければならないんだそうです。

なるほど。。。
常に明るく前向きに生きたいですね。
うーん、一週間瞑想が終わり、また帰ってきたいなーって思いました。
アシュラム巡りもいいかなー。
人生転換期なのかもしれません。
今を生きる大切さ、幸せだと思えるようにする方法、教えて頂いきました。

Spiritual Guidance:
The master Luang Ta Sayud is by far the most happiest person I've ever seen and so are the people who live around him. He posseses a sensitive and awakened awareness having been living close to Nature more than 50 years in forests all around the world and teaching meditation in different countries. This enables him to understand and relate with each person that enters the temple at a deeper level.

Description:
Tam Wua Forest Monastery is unique given the relationship of its people with the undescribable environment surrounded by the quietude of Nature. It's a property of the humanity and for humanity. For centuries the caves at the temple were a refuge for many great monks to practise. The environment offers a safe and protected place for a proper mental development training close to the real Nature.

Mae Hong Son is the Province with the most amount of mountains and least number of inhabitants per capital. The magic starts on the way from the begining of you journey until you step out of the bus driving through the curves lost in the emptiness of space between the giant mountains and expressive presence of Nature. The monastery has no big buildings or luxury pagodas. The Temple is Nature itself and your Body is part of Nature and it is the best temple you're going to visit.

There are retreats organized specifically for Thai doctors and nurses, teachers and students.

Tradition and Preceptor:
Theravada.

The world-open character of the main master Luang Tah Sayud developed in traveling around the world combined with the essence of surviving alone in forests for many years long is warm and welcoming to everyone who ever wanted to experience meditation. He attends to individuals and societies, serving not only Thai citizens or buddhists, but all nationalities and religions.


Meditation Method:
For all different levels. Anapanasati - the art of breathing and Samadhi - concentration are the techniques practiced and taught in English at the temple to develop mindfulness - awareness and attention. Together they complement the foundation of Vipassana - insight and wisdom allowing to gain the understanding about yourself and the realization of your true responsibilities in an integrated and harmonic manner with everyone and everything existent in Nature - Dhamma, especially yourself. Also Metta – technique to give your heart a good quality and set your mind in a good state of sharing compassion and loving kindness towards others.
