Meditation, one of the fundamental components of Buddhist praxis, is gaining popular awareness around the world. In the past few decades, journalists and researchers have reported that the benefits of meditation are applicable to Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike, across all walks of life and professions around the world. Better decision-making, health benefits, concentration and stress reduction are some of the significant benefits that are convincing people to meditate.
Along with traditional monastics and laypeople, children are also being encouraged to become regular meditators.
His British sense of wry jest (who can forget about his quip about those who approach him about relationships, when he became a monk to escape all that rubbish), along with his mastery of the common person’s tongue, has helped him to match the charisma and pedagogical power of his senior, Ajahn Sumedho. A BBC report in 2013 reports that one million children took part in a meditation session at Phra Dhammakaya in Bangkok.
Over the years, a very special relationship has developed between the artist and the owner of this gallery. In countries and regions where Mahayana Buddhism is practiced, children are also taught meditation by monks and lay teachers.
Journalist Emma Bi went to review his work at an exhibition earlier this year and report for Buddhistdoor International (BDI) on this interesting artist who is inspired by Buddhism in a very personal and meaningful way in his creative process. For example, many sessions of meditation for children have been conducted at Wang Fat Ching She and Plum Village in Hong Kong.
The number of children participating in these sessions is on the rise.Children in meditation session at Phra Dhammakaya in Thailand. While it has remained possible for nuns to be ordained in the Dharmaguptaka and Mulasarvastivada bhikkhuni codes in East Asia, Ajahn Brahm's challenge to Theravada orthodoxy (and his ordination of the four nuns) led to his expulsion from the Ajahn Chah Forest Sangha lineage. Thanks to his efforts, we have continued to see a slow but surely growing tide of questions that press for greater egalitarianism: Why should there not be more female leaders in Buddhism? Growing up with less stress helps children to concentrate on their studies, while compassion helps them to become more empathetic and kind. Mary MacVean of The Los Angeles Times has reported that hundreds of schools in California are developing mindful meditation programs. It is the depth and diversity of his strengths - honesty, humour, mirth, tenderness, and determination - that have continued to nurture an admiring audience in the global Buddhist community.

She further writes: “Mindfulness is said to help with focus, attention, calming the emotions and school performance. And he will find the warm welcome he rightly expects in Hong Kong, which is no stranger to his laughter and Dharma talks.
These are factors that lead children to perform well in their studies.”According to a report by Rebecca Hardy in the UK’s The Independent, it is suggested that meditation also makes it easy for parents to take care of children with “monkey minds”.
From 1994 until now, my various workplaces have been moving, and this seems to be reflected in the fact that my pieces have changed together with my workplace.
In order to be able to learn from these principles, then my best method of access was to become a temporary monk. But, in mainland China, it is not the custom to take temporary vows in the Mahayana tradition of Buddhism.
However, in the Mount Jizu area of southwestern China, there is a Theravada temple with a monk named Shou Fang Guang who allows lay community men to take temporary vows and experience Buddhism in the life of a monk. On a different occasion at the Man Ting Fo in Xi Shuang Ban Na in southwest China, we all had a little small room. Compared to my life as a layperson when I studied Buddhism at home, I finally understood the purpose of a monk’s life in the world and the meaning of gratitude. Near the end, some monks volunteered to walk together from Xi Shuang Ban Na (the city where the temple was located) to Mount Jizu. Eight of us made the journey of 800 kilometers by walking where we slept in the wild, in riverbeds, in forests, and in abandoned houses with only three sets of robes and a bowl. Based on all these special experiences, I hope to take some time each year for retreat from my layperson life. The sediment in the water will start to settle down after one has calmed in the meditation process. We are really thankful for the opportunity to learn something about your background and how Buddhism influences your creative process that we can all share and enjoy. It preserves its identity and the cultural aspects of Theravada Buddhism that have influenced millions. Reviving Theravada Buddhism and strengthening its foundations had been an important mission of the nationalistic movement that emerged before and after independence from the British in 1948.

In light of such significant events, a nationwide interest in understanding the fundamentals of Buddhism also gained ground.
This idea became a reality in 1958 when the three scholars formed the Buddhist Publication society and released a booklet called Bodhi Leaves for free distribution. This publication, although small in the number of printed copies, was accepted with much enthusiasm by both the local and international Buddhist community. Nyanaponika then released the renowned meditation guidebook Heart of Buddhist Meditation which is still regarded as one of the best literary works on Theravada meditation. Dhammika are some of the internationally acclaimed authors who have published their work with BPS so far.
I can say with confidence that it was the Buddhist Publication Society which made Theravada what it is now, outside of Sri Lanka. We made the teachings available for both Sri Lankans and foreigners by translating Pali texts into English and Sinhala from their original source. The BPS edition of the Tipitaka translated by Bhikku Bodhi and Maurice Walshe is considered to be the most comprehensive translation of its kind in existence. In addition, over 1200 books on topics such as meditation, Abhidhamma, history, sutta discussions and contemporary Buddhism continue to be reprinted. Instead, we are reprinting each important and popular book we have in our collection,” commented Professor P. Premasiri, the current President of BPS.    In addition to publishing, the Buddhist Publication Society hosts a free online library of e-books and also functions as a center where regular Dhamma discussions are conducted. Nyanaponika, acts as a charity program which donates free copies of BPS publications to universities and other institutes worldwide. The Buddhist Publication Society is a registered charity organization in Sri Lanka which solely depends on the donations of its well-wishers.
