In late May 2017, Thailand celebrated the 111th year since the birth of the radical visionary monk, Ven. Ajahn Buddhadasa of Wat Suanmoke, Chai Ya in southern Thailand.
Senior monks, nuns, respected translators of Ajahn Buddhadasa’s talks and books, long standing Dharma practitioners over decades and hundreds of others gathered together in Suanmoke-Bangkok and in the forest monastery near Chai Ya for talks, discussions and meditations.
Suanmoke-Bangkok kindly invited me to be one of the keynote speakers. Title of the talk is:
THE MUTUAL SUPPORT OF THE ORDAINED SANGHA AND HOUSEHOLDERS.
Here is a transcription and edit of the talk lasting for 30 minutes.
May all beings live with wisdom
