A Thai Buddhist

About Me: 

Amongst the rice fields and Buddhist temples of Central Thailand I was born and raised. My calling in life is The Buddha Garden Website, which is my main outlet as a female Buddhist, and is like a child to me. What most concerns me is the rapid pace of change in the world and how that will be transforming Thai culture, as well as the consequences it will have on Buddhism in the world. I think that there are so many lessons that can be learned from the Dharma, even though it is over 2,500 years old, that can be applied today. In fact, meditation techniques taught by the Buddha are being used in prisons around the world to help the inmates deal with incarceration. I think that if prisoners are able to overcome self-defeating habits, then those of us with free will can certainly change our karma.
