Vipassana meditation centers in Thailand that cater specifically to foreigners by holding meditation sessions and retreats only in English

Keywords: meditation, Retreats, Thailand

Since the 60s, many foreigners have trained at monasteries in Thailand and have become monks & permanent visitors. However, there are a few rules that should be observed when visiting a monastery:

  • Never sit with the soles of your feet facing a Buddha image or a Buddhist monk. It is considered ill-mannered to sit with them facing an object of respect.
  • Women should not touch a Buddhist monk. If a female wishes to make an offering to a monk, she should place it on a table and allow the monk to accept from there.
  • Do not climb on sacred objects and do not hug Buddha statues.
  • Do not take photographs of meditating monks as this obviously disturbs their practice.
