WAT TAM WUA FOREST MONASTERY MAE HONG SON THAILAND_ЛЕСНОЙ  МОНАСТЫРЬ ТАМ ВУА МАЕ ХОНГ СОН ТАИЛАНД ВИПАССАНА МЕДИТАЦИЯThe heartfelt wish of everyone at Wat Tam Wua is for all beings to be happy, peaceful, free from enmity and suffering. Concider Wat Tam Wua a home away from home. In order to respect the community and practice here, some information and guidelines is provided below.

Meditation

The Budda taught a path to completely eliminate suffering by developing profound insight into the nature of reality. Insight(Vipassana) involves first allowing one's mind to settle and become calm. In meditation, one learns to rest in mindfulness, bare awareness of the present, while letting go of habitual thought patterns and emotions. With a calm open mind free of preconceptions, beliefs, opinions or desires, it is possible to see deeply into the nature of things and understand the relationship between our experiences of happiness and suffering their causes.
In order to calm the mind and meditate one needs to simplify one's busy life, attending to basic needs but minimizing distractions. While at the monastery, it is recommended that reading be limited, and oriented towards practice. Eating less rests one's digestion and is conducive to clarity of mind. Noble silence is not routine here, but quiet moderation is respectful, and talking is best kept to a functional minimum. Relax, enjoy the practice. Check for yourself just what is conducive to calm and just what hinders.
If we wish to develop meditation practice, Budda taught that one needs proper conduct, right instruction regarding meditation, as well as correct view or understanding. These are called the Three Trainings of Conduct, Meditation and Wisdom. The common sense wisdom of "doing no harm" is precisely the foundation needed for one's meditation practice, protecting oneself and others from conflict and disturbance. More specifically, there are five negative actions that should be avoided: killing, stealing, lying, intoxications and sexual misconduct. The wisdom that arises naturally from calm open awareness informs one's conduct and meditation practice in turn, so the three trainings are interdependent.
Prior experience of meditation is not necessary. Most meditation sessions at the monastery are guided by the abbot, Ajahn Luangta. Luangta speaks English and is an experienced meditator in the Thai Forest Tradition.
Usually we meditate using the four postures: walking, standing, sitting and lying down. In particular, we use breathing as the object of mindfulness, a simple natural phenomenom that is always present, and inclines the mind towards calm and away from excitement and distractions.
Try to develop the confidence to experiment with meditation, and learn directly from your own experience, from direct observation, from nature.

Luangta requests all those staying at the wat to participate fully in monastery life by attending all scheduled sessions, as well as helping with community chores!

Thai understand this noble tradition and offer alms,gifts or donations generously. A contribution that covers at least the basic costs of you stay is appropriate, but if you do not have the means, please try to contribute by helping with community chores.

Thai Buddhist culture

As elsewhere in Asia, avoid pointing the soles of one's feet at monks or nuns or images/objects revered by Buddhist.
Thai bow to monks, to the Buddha, the Dhamma(teachings of the Buddha) and the Sangha(community of worthy practitioners). In general, one bows too when arriving at and departing a meditation hall.
A monk's discipline involves protecting his senses and hence monks are not permitted to be alone with or touch women. In accordance with this principle, men are generally closer to the monks, sitting to the fore in meditation halls, and taking priority in offering alms etc.
