Wat Kow Tahm

( Mountain Cave Monastery )


Through an overall and balanced mental development practice, we may be able to gain Insight into our own nature and the laws of Nature; developing deep Compassion and Understanding of the origins of difficulties and stress, and how to end them. This Compassionate Understanding may enable us to deal more successfully with all life's situations, whether pleasant or unpleasant, helping us to react to the arising and passing of experience within ourselves and the world in a more balanced way.

Various Buddhist meditation techniques of Mind Development are blended into a basic practice in order to give the meditator many different ways of developing beneficial mind qualities such as Compassion, Patience, Loving kindness, Acceptance, Equanimity, Joy, etc. At the same time these help to lessen attachment to unbeneficial qualities such as anger, hatred, greed, worry, frustration, self-pity, envy, etc.

If we learn a balanced practice, we are able to use whatever is appropriate to deal with the often complex and difficult experiences in life. As we learn to react in a wise way, Peace, Balance and Strength start to be experienced within the purification and development of the mind.
