What we're about

Hi - welcome to our Little Bangkok Sangha.

When I came to Bangkok in 2001 there was no dharma in English to be found. The temples are all happy to compete for the tourist dollar, but there was no explanations, no sangha, no friends on the path.

So I started the ball rolling. That was 2007. Now we organize lots of events, and bring people together from all kinds of meditation backgrounds.

There are regular dhamma talks, workshops, discussion events, lunches and sometimes retreats. It depends on visiting teachers schedules.

Since we have no permanent venue of our own (yet) we have few costs. Pretty much everything we do is without cost - except for retreats of course - but even those are as low cost as we can make it.

I hope you can join in. If you are new it takes a while for your face and name to be remembered, but you should find an interesting mix of people. (plus a few real oddballs!)

The full website is at www.littlebang.org - the calendars there feature all events, arranged by us and other groups. Here on Meetup we only feature our own events - that's already a ton of emails that Meetup sends out!!

Hope to meet you.

Phra Pandit talks instead of our regular meetings

Online event

Dear Members of the Little Bangkok Sangha We hope you, your family and all those you hold dear, are all well and that you are able to take good care of yourself and others during this uncertain and worrying period. As you know, we are unable to meet in person at the moment, so as a way of supporting our regular Monday Night practice we are suggesting listening to Dhamma talks by Phra Pandit Bhikkhu. Many of you will know that Venerable Pandit is a British monk who was ordained and has lived and taught in Thailand for over twenty years. He is also the founder of the Little Bangkok Sangha. On our YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRknYJD_V3gJZo45tJBxtaA?view_as=subscriber you will find many of his talks. Some short talks (less than 10 minutes), some longer ones (45-60 minutes) and some that are part of a series or a course, e.g. on Meditation. There is something for everyone, whether you are a beginner or an experienced practitioner. Of course you can listen at any time that suits you. However, if it’s possible for you to sit somewhere quiet to listen to one of his talks and then meditate for 20 minutes, starting at our usual time of 6.45pm on Monday, we would have a virtual community :-) Feel free to comment afterwards if you would like to.
