Monasticism, Lifestyle, and Community by Ajahn Geoff


Venerable Bhikkhu Ṭhānissaro Mahathera (Ajahn Geoff) talked on monasticism, lifestyle, and community. These were the questions asked in that short talk:
  • What is a monastery? 
  • Some people think that to go to a monastery is to run away from the world and that it is a selfish act. What do you think? 
  • What are the drawback of solitude? 
  • What inspired you to join a monastery? 
  • Can non-Buddhists benefit from a monastery? 
  • What would you say to those who think that to go to a monastery is weird? 
  • Do you think that seeking happiness too hard, causes suffering?
