Meditation practice: Thai Forest Meditation

Thai Forest Meditation

Thai Forest Meditation is a tradition of the Theravada school of Buddhism. Its origins are traced to The Buddha's Enlightenment under a large fig tree (The Bodhi Tree). Devotees who 'go forth' in the tradition recognise that living simply and close to nature supports the development of insight and wisdom. The tradition has been revived by present-day monks in Northeastern Thailand.
