Meditation in Doi Suthep, Chiang Mai

25 Aug

For the next 6 days we’re going to be meditating in the ancient Doi Suthep temple in the mountains surrounding Chiang Mai. We’re not allowed to use computers, listen to music, read, or eat any solid food after 12 noon, and all our clothing has to be white.  I even bought some ‘sexy’ white underwear (see picture).

The daily routine:

4:30am- The day begins
5:00am- Morning practice
6:30am- Breakfast
8:00am- Short Dhamma Talk
11:00am- Lunch
3:00pm- Daily meeting with a teacher
7:00pm- Dhamma Talk
10:00pm- The day ends

    Why spent money to having hard life 🙂
    Without computer and music I will die.

    You can stay at these places for free and just pay a donation. The temple was so beautiful and the whole thing really relaxing.
