« Is it true that ‘Eastern’ teachings may not be fully comprehendible without a detailed historical, cosmological, sociological and psychological understanding of the various spiritual investigations that have developed across Asia over the last three to four millennia? If so, then the same should apply to Western teachings. I think such blanket statements refer more to academic understandings than appreciation of the essence of the religions... »  [Download]

« Science sheds light on details and occasionally embraces the intuition of wise practitioners to describe even more of the mystery. That experiential element of wise intuition is the focus of Buddhist and most other religious practices, if their cultural and institutional accretions are removed. So we now can amplify some key aspects of Buddhism that can shine more light on sustainability by considering the lives and works of two Thai practitioners... »  [Download]

Je sens que cette retraite va changer beaucoup de choses dans ma vie... »  [More information]

«  Before departing Bangkok, I created one last work of art in order to enter it in a show at the World Trade, Hua Mak. In the process, I observed a large ceramic vase being made by another Thai artist. I took this vase and painted a design on it and put it in a kiln. After it was fired I let it cool, and while it was still warm I carried it down south as a gift for Achan Suan Mokkh. This vase is still displayed at Suan Mokkh. When I arrived at Suan Mokkh, I posed a question to Achan... »  [More information]
