The Path to Enlightenment I ...
The Path to Enlightenment in Buddhism is entirely concerned with being mindful. There is no alternative path.
To be mindful is the most direct way to free ourselves from the world of conditioned reality, the world of thinking, which hinders us from seeing the Absolute Truth. Once we can separate ourselves from the world of thoughts we will be able to see the true nature of things, how they all arise and then pass away.
The mind will evolve and even- tually become equanimous, freeing itself from all defilements. It will gain wisdom and understand the Absolute Truth beyond conditioning.
The Buddhist Way To Peace of Mind...
Essentially, Buddhism is about right view; clearly seing, correctly understanding the phenomena that arise in the body and mind. Clearly seeing the truth of all phenomena, the mind releases attachment to them. This seeing, with crystal clarity, The Four Noble Truths : the truths of suffering, its cause, its end and the path leading to its end.
Suffering is the truth of body and mind. Our duty with respect to suffering is to observe it. When we fully understand suffering and see the truth of body and mind with crystal clarity, we abandon the cause of suffering, desire, In that moment, we know the end of suffering as thepath to its end emerges. If we can see and fully accept the Truth, we will suffer no more.
The Four Noble Truths are the most profound and imprtant teachings. If we don't see suffering with crystal clarity, then we will struggle endlessly in the cylcle of birth and death.
To see the truth...
When we watch the mind correctly, we will see whatever arises as it really is. We will see the true nature of body and mind. We will see that they are not us. We will keep seeing the truth of body and mind until we become dispassionate to their constant flux, their insubstantially, their suffering nature.
We will release attachment to them, be liberated and know that liberation has taken place. What will we be liberated from? We will be liberated from attachment to this body and this mind. We will be liberated from suffering, because suf- fering resides in this body and this mind.
Can you see that these are the only two places where suffering can be found? Upon liberation, suffering will be gone and we will be fully aware, awakened and blissful without any effort or maintenance necessary.
About Venerable“Luang Por” Pramote...
Venerable “Luang Por” Pramote Pamojjo is a Buddhist monk residing in Suan Santidham (The Garden of Peaceful Dhamma), Sriracha, Chonburi, Thailand. He teaches the Dhamma to avid practitioners looking to truly understand the middle way and to progress in their practice.
Bangkok residents set out on an hour and a half drive in the darkness of the early morning to arrive before sunrise and line up outside Luangpor’s center to get a good seat to listen to his teachings, express their concerns regarding their own practice and receive individual advice – a custom that has been coined “submitting their homework” for the headmaster to fine-tune or modify.
He travels tirelessly around Thailand and abroad, teaching and helping to wake up the minds of people as he goes, in what is quickly becoming one of the biggest Buddhist enlightenment movements in recent times.
Luangpor became a monk in 2001 after being an avid meditator since he was seven years old. He has had many teachers along the way, but considers himself primarily a disciple of Luang Pu Dune, from North Eastern Thailand’s forest monk lineage of Luang Pu Mun Bhūridatto.
The Path to Enlightenment II ...
The path still exists. Travelers still follow in a steady stream. Set off today before the wind of time blows away His holy footprints. Then, we will have to wander without directions for long.
For you, The Newcomer...
Mindfulness of mind is a wording that a few years ago sounded strange, but is now very popular and widely used, particularly in the groups of people who are interested in practicing Dhamma. This is because mindfulness of mind is suitable to urban society where most people have to think a lot at work. It is also very conducive to practice in everyday life.
However, beginners who are interested in mindfulness of mind have come up with problems: how to begin, what the mind is, what is required, how to practice mindfulness, etc. These problems have become the frequently asked questions of beginners.
Therefore, we have requested permission from Venerable Phra Pramote Pamojjo to publish these articles, For You the Newcomer and A Brief Guideline for Practicing Dhamma for free distribution to people who are interested in practicing Dhamma by mindfulness of mind so that this book will clear their doubts and provide them with the basis for further practice.
A Meditator’s Guide...
There are two main types of meditation found in Buddhism: Samatha and Vipassana. In coming to the practice of Samatha or Vipassana, we need to have the mental clarity to know which one we have selected and for what purpose.
The purpose of Samatha is to bring a mind that is not peaceful to a state of peace, to bring a mind that is not happy to a state of happiness, and to bring an unwholesome mind to a state of virtue.
In Vipassana, we do not practice to change anything in this way, but to gain a proper understanding of the way things are (sammā-dhitti). We practice so we can see the true nature of body and mind.

The Path of Freedom(Vimutti magga)
This Article is written to tell you, friends, about vimutti magga or the Path of Freedom. It is simple, pleasant and leading to realization of Nibbāna, which is right before your eyes.
This path was sought by countless people, but never found until the Buddha discovered it. And we can easily follow the Buddha on this path if we study the three lessons taught by Him. Not long after following the Noble Path, we will have a feeling that Nibbāna is not beyond hope.
But before enumerating the Path of Freedom, I would like to invite all friends who are interested in Dhamma to change your own feeling from being a “practitioner” to being a “student” because the term “practice” is an illusion. It makes us feel that we should do something extraordinary...
“… When we become aware of our body and mind and accept the truth of them, that they are impermanent, do not persist and are beyond control, then we will be liberated and abide in the greatest happiness.”
