My family was Chinese-School Buddhists;we paid respect to Chinese Gods and offered food to our ancesters. We had little knowledge of real Buddhism. When I was a university student, I lived my life in a very worldly and reckless way which I thought was fullfiling like going out at nights and drinking. This lifestyle gave me a lot of troubles at the time but I did not know the way out. However, Meditation and studying Buddhist Dhamma have changed my life. I grew more patient and conscious, able to avoid all kinds of circumstances that would cloud my mind.I stopped taking sleeping pills,drinking, going out at nights and being short-tempered and started to accruing merits.......

|The easiest way to gain the biggest Merit|
พฤหัสบดี 25 ธ.ค. 51 ชม 5,794 ครั้ง
However overjoyed I felt from the merits I got from asking other people to make merit(do goodness), I felt that the merits I made for myself was more important. But then again I thought, " A poor person like myself does not have a lot of money to give to charity, how can I get a lot of merit?" . Suddenly the words of wisdom from a respectable monk came to mind, "The easiest way that a person can gain the biggest merit without spending any money is practicing meditation." Those words of wisdom were the stating point that inspired me to meditate.

The bright spot in the middle of the moon existed amidst a very huge hollow sphere. I could feel the sphere's enormous size because I could not tell where its end was. This bright spot brought me the feeling of peace all through my body. Practicing Meditation is the beauty of life.

Venerable Luang Phaw Dhammajayo is like the sun that gives light which eradicates the darkness in people's minds. I am one of the people who learned the bright Right path of life from Luang Phaw. I tranformed from the person who never believed in the afterlife, Hell and Heaven,and perform bad deeds which would lead me to Hell to be the person who performs good deeds and have Heaven as my future afterlife, Nirvana as my goal and the utmost of Dhamma as the ultimate goal. Thanks to the trip to Panawat Meditation Retreat, I've changed to be a person who is now close to the temple inside out.
|Losing inner strength|

Recently, I have been feeling that my inner strength has been fading away and I don't know why. I've been exercising regularly but it still makes me feel physically and mentally exhausted. My boss then suggested me to meditate and it did rescue me.
|I was lost inside but Meditation rescued me|

I used to keep anger and angst in my heart. They gradually became heavier and heavier until they ate up all parts of my heart and took control of me. I got more angry,depressed and lonely. I drank and refused to eat. I tortured myself in many ways. I felt agitated and tempermental all the time feeling like things were not going to get better if I was still in this state of mind. I was totally lost inside. Knowing what I was going through, my mum introduced me to meditation. And,surprisingly,it rescued me.
|Only keep stilling the mind|

My meditation progressed through me stilling the mind. Stilling(the mind) made the mind become clearer and purer. I saw Dhammakaya (the Buddha image within)clearer by stilling the mind without applying any force. I gradually felt like I was inside Dhammakaya.

Finally, I lost the sense of physical suffering, not feeling pain anymore. I then felt physically relaxed and I saw Dhammakaya in a crystal clear ball in a Top-view perspective lining up like the ones I saw on DMC.

I felt overjoyed and happy in such a way I haven't expereinced before. Happiness through meditation excels all other kinds of happiness. I smiled all day and felt like sharing this great joy to people around me. Then, I realized that this is why Luang Phaw(Dhammajayo)wishes for everyone around the world to meditate in order to gain such joy and happiness.

I was doing what the teaching monk told me, relaxing my mind and not thinking of anything. Suddenly, there was a spot of bright light like the sun apprearing at the center of my stomach. Then, I saw a long crystal clear tube appearing to draw the sun into. The sun then moved down and reached the end of the tube.

Suddenly, the 220 volt electricity was running into my body and caused my hands to stick to the metal plate. I felt so much pain all through my body,to the tips of my toes. I felt like I was going to die. I then closed my eyes, trying to embrace death consciously, letting go of all attachments and settling my mind at the seventh base.(the center of the body)

As soon as I finished making resolutions,there was a spot of light appreaing at the center of my body. In that spot of light,I saw the most amazing thing in my life which was the most venerable Phramongkolthepmuni(Sodh Candasaro,Luang Pu Wat Pak Nam)meditating at the center of my body. Moreover,Luang Pu was very bright with a Golden aura like his body was all gold.
|Stilling the mind makes me happy|

During intervals, the brightness was still within me. It made me feel so happy in the way I could not describe,as if my mind was filled with joy so much I could cry. When I got back from Panawat Meditaton Retreat, I continued meditation every day. During the day, I'd see the brightness but I might not see the Dhammakaya(a clear Buddha image)all the time. However, I'd see it clearly in meditation.

The teaching monk taught us to visualize any kind of Buddha image we liked. I could do that but got a little indecisive when it came to choosing only one to focus on since I had so many in mind. I could not visualize a crystal ball for I felt that it was impossible to have a crystal clear ball which was normally quite heavy in my stomach. I then decided to go back to Bangkok. However, I did not do so due to the fact that I was astounded by Luang Phaw Dhammajayo's meditation advice carved on the stone in front of the meditation hall,saying that " Can you just only still your mind?"

One night,around 1 am, I had a dream. In the dream, I saw the Master Nun Chandra Koon-Nok-Yoong and she said " You have to sit longer if you want to be able to attain Dhammakaya Knowledge" then she sat meditating for me to watch all night untill dawn. This greatly boosted my determination to meditate regardless of how late I finished work.

Meditation makes my face and skin radiant. I sleep easier, have a good dream, have better appetite and stop having headaches. It also gives good results connerning my every day life, my mind and my work. I've transformed myself from a hot-tempered and heedless person into a calmer person whose mind is serene all the time. No matter how big any problems are, I stay calm and reasonable, able to find solutions to the problem in a systematic way.

About 10 minutes later,I felt lighter and while sitting a little longer I felt like there was something appearing in my stomach, then I saw a clear Buddha image. The Buddha image illuminated, as bright as the mid-day sun. I kept on stilling my mind untill the end of that session.

I attained inner peace and happiness from meditation. After the program, I then meditated everyday untill it became my routine. I would feel uncomfortable on any day I did not meditate. Meditating everyday makes me feel light, happy and relaxed in every body position. My grades are better. My thought, my words and my actions have been changed for the better.

I've found the landmark of the mind by visualizing the sun at the center of my body. Suddenly, I found very bright spot of light . It was the feeling of infinity between my self and the universe. Being able to see the sun at the center of my body and see the center spot of the inner light is such an undescribable experience.

When I kept stilling my mind at the center of my stomach, I could see the image in a three-dimensional way. The image kept expanding to all directions untill it turned to be a round object. That round object was gradually drawing me inside it untill I felt I was at the center of the round object. It then encircled my body and mind.

I advised my mum who lives in Thailand to practice generosity, observe precepts,meditate and watch DMC. My mum goes to observe precepts at the temple near our house every Buddhist Holy Day. I always call her and tell her that " Dear Mum, you should make as much merit as you can. We don't know when we die. Only merit can help you and is your real refuge which will follow you everywhere you go.
