    Neat @Bunks 👍...How far from Melbourne is the centre ?

  • BunksBunks Australia Veteran

    About 80 kms @Shoshin1

    Same distance from Geelong where I live too.

    People drive up most days and offer food. Mainly supported by the Sri Lankan community even though it's Thai Forest tradition.

  • Really interesting :):+1:

    One small question: what was the name of your Danish teacher?

  • AlexAlex UK Veteran

    Great video @Bunks I really enjoyed that. You put things across in a very easily understood manner, a great communicator 👍 I’ve learned that your name is Luke, also ! What you said about always coming back to Theravada.....I’ve been finding that too. I like to look at other practices and traditions, yet I always feel most grounded and at home in Theravada.

    There’s something most uplifting about being amongst trees too, beautiful 🌳

    Glad you enjoyed it Alex! Yes, there’s something very grounding about the Theravadan tradition I find. Perhaps it suits the western mind a bit more than the Mahayana traditions? Don’t know

    Vlogging is a great way to become aware of thoughts and progress. Bravo @Bunks.

    Dear Spiritual Diary,

    • keep it real
    • be kind to Noobs, Trolls and Theravadins
    • wear a mask and be a Jane Jain
    • wander lowly as a Taoist ...

    etc etc ...

    lobster over and out ...

    I wholeheartedly agree with you @bunks, maybe it’s because of them forest monks. Trees, grounding and all that. But it’s also the attitude to learning, I think.

    So will this be a thing? Once a week or just every now and then?

    Fun idea. I can see myself looking forward to the newest episode.

    Thank you @David - I hope you enjoy it.

    I will try and do it each week but my kids stay with me every second weekend so becomes a little challenging on that weekend. There won't be one today.

    Look out next week though :)

    Thanks @Bunks - I'm recovering from a dislocated jaw (happened 8 weeks ago now), but the treatment and focused practise is helping 🙏🙏

    Thanks @Kerome - it was a lovely day. Always warms the heart to head out into the forest and help out the Sangha. I really missed it last year during lock down.
    Take care 🙏❤️

    @Bunks I relate to this so much. I have a real monkey mind myself, so I use the Green Tara Mantra when I meditate. I've also had a Green Tara Empowerment so I find myself very attuned or close to her.
