    Venerable Kassapa | The Four Brahma-vihara | Monday Night Meditation at Wat Dhammayanaram

    Monday Night Meditation at Wat Dhammayanaram, Cambodian Society of WA (CBSWA) with Venerable Kassapa on the 19 July 2021. These weekly teachings give an introduction into Meditation and some guidance and basics into the practice of the Buddhist Path. They usually consist of a short talk, thirty minute meditation and then questions & answers.


    Venerable Kassapa has trained at Bodhinyana Monastery in Serpentine, WA (Buddhist Society of WA monastery – abbot Ajahn Brahmavamso), where he has been a resident since 2013.


    Currently Venerable Kassapa is staying at Wat Dhammayanaram two to three weeks at a time and then returning to Bodhinyana for a week. Venerable has committed to help out the temple (for possibly up to 1-2 years), to assist the Cambodian monk Bhante Sukkhakamo by keeping him company and helping with things, such as this teaching engagement. Venerable Kassapa has been helping the temple on and off since he became a monk.

The Winnie the Pooh of monks

I am so grateful for Ajahn Brahm and his dharma talks. I’ve learned so much and when I forget what I learned he’s there to gently remind me. Sadhu! Sadhu! Sadhu! - love from Phoenix Arizona!

Invaluable in its wisdom

I’ve been listening to talks from the BSOWA since 2012. Ajahn Brahm, Nissarano, Brahmali, and others have become fixtures in my life who I always come back to for wisdom to remind me of the truths of life. After growing up in an emotionally and physically abusive family, the monks’ years of talks have genuinely changed my assessment of the problems and trials that life gives us. I can’t thank you all enough for your years of service.

Wonderful

Makes Buddhist teachings and philosophy accessible to those new to it. Good for anyone who wants to understand Buddhism even on a non-religious basis.
