Table of Contents
Part I: Questions and answers
Question: Thailand is a Buddhist country. Whereas we emphasise God and the soul on our path, the Buddhist philosophy on these matters is one of silence. Usually this silence is interpreted as meaning that God may or may not exist and that the soul may or may not exist. It would be very helpful for us to have your word on what the Buddha meant or intended.
Question: I have been told that we should meditate by using our heart. But when you talk about silence, it means to make the mind still. At that moment, how do we use the heart?
Question: If we have already decided that we will choose this boat, then my question is how to bring our mind to the heart.
Question: If we stay in the same room all the time, then it is quite easy to keep our mind still. But when we have to work every day and deal with problems and people, it is quite hard to keep the mind still.
Question: But it doesn't work all the time.
Question: We would like to organise a seminar on meditation, but I have been very slow in learning to speak Thai.
Question: Many people want to meditate and come to a centre, but they don't wish to follow a path.
Question: I would like to come to see you in New York, but it is quite expensive.
