ITINERARY

Introduction to Buddhist Meditation at Wat Mahathat - Half Day

You will be picked up at 12:00. Forge a closer connection with the Buddhist culture with a meditation course at Wat Mahathat. Begin the afternoon with a transfer to Wat Mahathat, one of Bangkok’s most important meditation centres and its first Buddhist university. Upon arrival, meet with one of the monks who will introduce the day’s activities and explain his own personal experience with meditation.

With the assistance of the monk, learn the techniques of meditation. The course is based on the Buddha’s four foundations of mindfulness: mindfulness of body, feelings, mind and dhamma. After learning the basic principles of meditation then take some time to practice alongside the locals.

Feeling calm and centred, and with a great understanding of Buddhist meditation practices, say farewell to the monks and return to the hotel.
