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.

Mind of Beasts and the Centered Mind

Link visible for attendees

The Little Bangkok Sangha is inviting you to a Zoom meeting on Monday 13 February, 2023 from 6:30 – 08:00 PM Bangkok time.

Getting past much of the pseudo-psychology that is modern Buddhism, this talk will be based around one of the original teachings from Shakyamuni, in which he advises "How to have a good death". Focus will be on what was described as the 'scattered' and the 'non-scattered' mind in meditation.

Sitting for Peace

Link visible for attendees

The Little Bangkok Sangha Online is holding a Sitting for Peace meditation on Monday 20 February from 6.30 PM to 7 PM.

The merit we generate will be dedicated to healing and peace – in ourselves, our communities and around the globe.

We are all acutely aware of the suffering in Ukraine and also in Russia, but there are other conflicts in over three dozen countries, our climate is rapidly destabilizing and many ecosystems are under stress.

Rather than becoming overwhelmed or depressed, let’s come together to collectively generate peace and send the merit to all the beings and places who need it. Each meeting will include simple meditation guidance by an experienced practitioner for those who have not meditated before.
