Greetings in the Dhamma, and welcome to the inaugural Community Newsletter. The purpose of this little publication is to bring news and items of interest to you each month. It is a privilege for me to serve as your editor, and I shall try to make the newsletters as interesting and informative as possible.


Of course, you won’t want to just read the bits I write, so I invite you all to contribute – this is YOUR newsletter, after all. At the foot of the final page there are contact details, so send in a contribution. It can be news, views, recipes, pictures, or insights you’ve achieved during meditation. Contributions can be in English, Thai, or Lao – as long as they come to me as an email attachment, I can publish them. But translation is, alas, beyond my slender abilities!
