|Buddhism is about the heart (mind)and the breath (prana or chi) = compassion + wisdom.|
Ajahn Mun taught that all hearts (minds) have the same language. No matter what one's language or nationality, the heart has nothing but simple awareness, which is why he said that all hearts have the same language. When a thought arises, we understand it.
|The forest monastic tradition rediscovered in the 20th century, Isan, Thailand: famous monks|
When anyone died, he would take that person's skull and knock on it — knock, knock, knock — focus his mind, and then know that this person was reborn here or there, on this plane or that. If the person was reborn in a hell or a heaven, or as a common animal or hungry ghost, he could tell in every case, without hesitation. All he needed was to knock on the skull.
