Hi, I'm new to this group, so I'm sorry if this has already been discussed: I used to do these retreats but one reason I stopped was because they were (in my experience) against having special food…Continue

HIYA! I'll be in Bangkok from Sep 18th or 19th and will be there or about a week. If anyone will be free to talk or to run around with me, let me know. I'm on the hunt for some Zen Buddhism or other really cool places, like ... and this one is a long shot too, but Taoist teachers, Sufis (I'm pretty sure Thailand's got some) (ภาษาไทยว่า ซูฟีย์ ผมค่อนข้างจะชัวร์ว่ามีนะ), or even Christians doing a contemplative practice using meditation. I've got a couple of leads on Zen but will be winging it with anything else. I've got a couple of other things I'll need to do in Bangkok too. I'll head to a Buddhist temple either in Krabi or Kanchanaburi after I leave Bangkok.

unreliable

"Monks, suppose there were a river, flowing down from the mountains, going far, its current swift, carrying everything with it, and — holding on to both banks — kāsa grasses, kusa grasses, reeds, bīraṇa grasses, & trees were growing. Then a man swept away by the current would grab hold of the kāsa grasses, but they would tear away, and so from that cause he would come to disaster. He would grab hold of the kusa grasses… the reeds… the bīraṇa grasses… the trees, but they would tear away, and so from that cause he would come to disaster. "In the same way, there is the case where an uninstructed, run-of-the-mill person — who has no regard for noble ones, is not well-versed or disciplined in their Dhamma; who has no regard for people of integrity, is not well-versed or disciplined in their Dhamma — assumes form to be the self, or the self as possessing form, or form as in the self, or the self as in form. That form tears away from him, and so from that cause he would come to disaster. "He assumes feeling… perception… fabrications to be the self…
"He assumes consciousness to be the self, or the self as possessing consciousness, or consciousness as in the self, or the self as in consciousness. That consciousness tears away from him, and so from that cause he would come to disaster."
