Das ist ihr ganz persönliches Thema, und Sie können es gerne jederzeit für ein Vorstellen, ein Hallo und Aufwiedersehen, um andere über persönliches zu infomieren oder auch für ganz persönliche Anliegen benutzen.

Von Zeit zu Zeit, vor allem wenn das Thema genutzt wird, verschieben wir es in das "Further introduction - Genauere Vorstellung " Forum, daß nur von angemeldeten Mitgliedern eingesehen werden kann. (generele Info dazu siehe hier )

Wir wünschen Ihnen, empty yogi, viel Freude mit ihrer Entdeckungsreise hier auf sangham.net und dem Jungel des Dhammas und vertrauen darauf, daß sie stets das richtige für Sie finden und es nie an passender Unterstützung fehlen mag und verbleiben hier im geben Ihres Zufallzitates des Ehrhabenen Buddha
Der Weise hofft für ein Kind,
von höherer oder gleicher Geburt,
nicht für eines
von niedrigerer Geburt,
   eine Schmach für die Familie.
Diese Kinder in der Welt,
   Laiennachfolger,
vollkommen in Tugend, Überzeugung,
großzügig, frei von Knausigkeit,
in jeder Versammlung, stets scheinen
gleich dem Mond
wenn von einer Wolke befreit.

Hi

Thank you for the welcome message. I'm not sure where to post this:

I heard this forum is run by a western monk living in Cambodia. I'm hoping you/someone can provide some advice.

I am thinking of moving to Cambodia (or elsewhere in SE Asia) for 6-9 months.  I'm a digital nomad so I will be working but will have about 3-4 hours 4-5 days/week (around 10am-1:30pm) where I'd like to go to a monastery to practice, talk philosophy, help out, etc.  I've been practicing for several years, primarily in a Tibetan lineage but I did study a bit with a Theravada abbot from Sri Lanka. I'd really like to spend some time at a Theravada center. I'm drawn to a practitioner oriented place but also value philosophy. I'm less inclined towards ritual. If I wasn't working I'd go to a forest monastery.

Any suggestions?

I was thinking of going to Siem Reap. I heard there are a few active monasteries (Wat Bo, Wat Phrom, Wat Dam Nak, Wat Brasat Tramneak) but I don't have any specifics. Anyone know if there are good practitioners/teachers there and a monk that speaks English?

I'm open to other places but have a few needs: good internet for work (i can use a SIM card), good condition apartment for myself with a kitchen.  I prefer to live in a quieter area with good/better air quality (so PP is out).

I'm also open to other SE asian countries where I can get a visa for at least 3 months.

Any suggestions/advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you

Just one who had left home, so no west or east or anything attached, Nyom empty yogi .

Atma saw you have been given guidance by Upasaka gus (thang) on DW today. Today another, possible soon digital Nomad, Upasaka Moritz arrives/arrived under the guardiance of Upasika Sophorn  for a first journey in the land of wonders.

There are many questions Nyom raised. To keep it best into the right direction: where ever one tends to, there he/she arrives.

This land of wonders has a big problem for those seeking security outside and desires for another home, but has still openings for those wishing to walk the wilderness path of the ancient.

Just to give a sample. My person was wandering on and "accidentally" came to the place where now resisting a little. No where there would be even no telephone connection. Now it did not only "accidentally" come to be provided by devices so that a connection to the modern world could be maintained, but in the middle of nowhere, in the forest, having high speed internet people often do not have in Phnom Penh. Others, resisting in "Cyber camps" may have daily troubles on the other side. There is still less that would one provide with the illusion of kamma, cause and effect, but times are changing.

The same is in regard of monasteries. It's up to ones Nissaya, Upanissaya, of which "food" one is searching for and that he may gain as well, sooner or later. If tending to noisy cities and not willing to let go of certain comfort, then the practice will be similar half-hearten, to say not greedy.

Quite areas are generally not to be found in SEasia, aside of possible luxury places or far of and void of any infrastructure.

General it's possible good to inform that organized "trade" with householder Dhamma, especially foreigner has luckily not arisen here although there are certain adventures by those after much gain. That might not be pleasant for common consumer but as there are less preoccupations out of it, it opens t doors for those really seeking to follow the "pioneer".

Maybe get familiar with the other Upasaka and Upasika here, many in normal live in Cambodia, and where ever one goes, it's good to be in association with admirable friends and that will foremost require to leave modern and western habits and to give much into the foundations of [En/De] Respect, Confidence,Patient . Abounding the terrible consumer attitude is probably the most difficult and "starting" by the roots most modern have totally overseen and therefore hard to practice after being taught the higher at to early times.

It's all about gate, gate , paragate, parasamgate ... and if right possible boddhisvaha.

Good topic to start, in manners of learning to give first, is Avatar and User placements , to give others a small impression that one is serious with his intentions and willing to scarifies to gain more sublime.

May Nyom be not to much disturbed by my persons direct and frontal kind and possible understand that time and possibility is not for sure and should not be wasted for the sake of gains in the world. Most feel fast not comfortable since less "giving favor and fake hopes" would be provided.

Much joy in exploring another world and my Nyom never hesitate to ask and also do what ever he feels inspired with good intention at least.

Nyom had possible a good random sutta as well, gifted by the Devas.

Mudita and best greetings to "Wanderer" Gus and that he may not give off too much he may still need for himself in the outer regions.

Not easy... Atma is aware of it. Nevertheless, there is no alternative door beside of giving into first, how ever much one might be corrupted by traders, that there is/are alternatives.

Since Cyber-Nomads usually need the feeling to be able to stay empty in avoiding all what is recognize-able that it nevertheless leads to debts:

So here "free" and "open-source", or better binding toward freedom (when honest said).

Having lived, "when my person was still a wandering Bodhisatta" in Siam Reap for a while, there is less to be expected being not just trade. And of course a huge paradise for "weekend Bodhisattas" and a large voluntary-industry as well a broad. Wat Dom Nak "Guesthouse" is of course the main center of all of this. Meanwhile, nearly 10 years ago, there might be already even more tourism in regard of those interested in Dhamma but surely not toward unbound.

There is surely a large Yoga and Hindu, tourist scene and of course all "Bodhisatva"-inspirations can be found there next beer and music as well, or in more expensive silent areas.

There is said to be a monastery with "relative good" Vinaya, a training Monastery, called "Wat Visuddhimaga" in the lands of Siam Reap. It's said to focus on on mediation.

Around, also near Phnom Kulen, there are surely plenty of places and monasteries familiar also with "western" desires and make their trades with meditation, little focusing on foreign holders as well.

But again, while looking around a little and share what might be accessible for Nyom: It's really all about to be sure where one likes to go and what one is actually really willing to give up to gain either another world desired or to start to go beyond and no one could guide well if there is no clear resolve to either this or that aim or wandering on.

Desiring the path to liberation starts usually with a one-way-ticket, some victuals and a great wide unknown, driven by firm confidence in cause and effect, having made ones refuge and firm in ones resolves of virtue. Where ever such a person would go, he will arrive, Noble and sublime. Yet, if not that far, the land of the Khmer (khema) is surly a good place to put ones "emptiness" under a serious prove, if open for such.

Others: there is already food for all kinds of desires in the world provided and trade here as well but for that better look at common costumer share places, with it's dangers and advantages under gamer.

Nyoms "welcome-sutta" is really a good one, since it gives him to know of what good places, Sanghas of Monks, real follower of the Buddha, would think as well and what it would require to act-ually find ones good destiny or way.

May Nyom shines always where ever he goes and comes to and soon let go of "emptiness" and "yogi", defiling the track, to arrive soon on the highest path, enter the stream to right liberation and right independency.

Hi

I don’t understand your reply. Let me clarify:

I am not a digital nomad. I’m a Buddhist practitioner. I have karma resulting in a large debt that I must pay off and then save money so I can do a long term (many years) retreat. I want to practice full time and do nothing else. But I have this karma, I have this debt. But some merit brought me a job where I can teach English online to Chinese kids and make good money. I can make my own schedule giving me some free time. And I am also going to teach English to a high lama I know in Tibet.

I am in europe and must leave mid May due to visa. I need somewhere with good internet for work. I need AC if it’s hot only during teaching hours or  I will overheat and my iPad will overheat.

I need a kitchen so I can cook my own food, saving money and eating healthier.

I don’t need expats or tourists. I prefer being somewhere without them.

I need good air quality because I have sensitivities and I can’t get sick or else I can’t work and that is a problem.

I would love to find somewhere I can spend a few hours a day in service at a monastery. I view this as practice. Helping a small monastery (I can’t teqch English as i need a break but I can help in other ways). Maybe also have some dharma philosophy, some meditation practice.

Does this make sense?

Also, while my background is in Tibetan Buddhism I value all practices. And I have a an attraction to Theravada practices. I would love to learn more and make some dharma friends sangha.

Personally, I prefer the face to face contact over the internet. If I didn’t need to work I would never be online. For those who like a virtual that’s awesome. I can participate once in awhile. And if I end up somewhere without a monastery I’d appreciate it. But I prefer in person interaction. 

Any suggestions on a quiet, clean air town in Cambodia that has good internet and with active monasteries?

Thank you

Nyom empty yogi , take your time and possible read all once again.

Hi
Only to let Nyom know: that's not a proper approach and just traders would welcoming it, knowing that is someone wishing much.
I don’t understand your reply.
How could Nyom, rushing around full of wishes.
Let me clarify:

I am not a digital nomad.
Oh really, thats fine as well.

...I am thinking of moving to Cambodia (or elsewhere in SE Asia) for 6-9 months.  I'm a digital nomad so I will be working ...

I’m a Buddhist practitioner.
Maybe Nyom likes to learn ways, as for now my person does not think so.

I have karma resulting in a large debt that I must pay off and then save money so I can do a long term (many years) retreat. I want to practice full time and do nothing else. But I have this karma, I have this debt.
Things have causes, yes. Now it's about changing ones ways, knowing what one gives, one gains, to get step by step out of debts. Focus on such, whils observing precepts strongly, doing generous acts and remembering the endless course of suffering in the world brings one forwardly.

But some merit brought me a job where I can teach English online to Chinese kids and make good money. I can make my own schedule giving me some free time. And I am also going to teach English to a high lama I know in Tibet.
They like debtors as well keep you on working.

I am in europe and must leave mid May due to visa. I need somewhere with good internet for work. I need AC if it’s hot only during teaching hours or  I will overheat and my iPad will overheat.
I need a kitchen so I can cook my own food, saving money and eating healthier.
Ever thought in ways of a "rich" person, not demanding but careful observing of what can be given? With much needs and wants, how would one even get free of worldy debts?

I don’t need expats or tourists. I prefer being somewhere without them.
I need good air quality because I have sensitivities and I can’t get sick or else I can’t work and that is a problem.
Well, Dhamma practice means to get ride of ones "sensitivities" and not in ways to generally avoid them.

I would love to find somewhere I can spend a few hours a day in service at a monastery. I view this as practice. Helping a small monastery (I can’t teqch English as i need a break but I can help in other ways).
Nyom is a potential "customer" for traders. Nothing to worry aside of that beyond trading.

Maybe also have some dharma philosophy, some meditation practice.
That does not depend on trades but, if from serious, on the amount Nyom would be able to leave his home/stand.

Does this make sense?
If asking whether Nyom currently heads toward liberation, it's path. Not now, but maybe now or a little bit later.

Also, while my background is in Tibetan Buddhism I value all practices.
Straight from a compassioned heart: throw all this poision away.

And I have a an attraction to Theravada practices.
If Nyom is attracted by the Buddhas good Dhamma: mudita, less have nissaya.

I would love to learn more ...
Most importand and good. Sadhu!

...and make some dharma friends sangha.
Nothing outwardly is more importand as admirable friends, teacher. Sangha, to get that right, are the Buddhas disciples who have left home and follow him straight.

Personally, I prefer the face to face contact over the internet. If I didn’t need to work I would never be online. For those who like a virtual that’s awesome. I can participate once in awhile. And if I end up somewhere without a monastery I’d appreciate it. But I prefer in person interaction. 
When even Nyom thinks that he can leave his home and stand and likes to do merits in what ever way.

Any suggestions on a quiet, clean air town in Cambodia that has good internet and with active monasteries?

Thank you
Quiet and clean... not easy, but not necessary of disadvantage. Clean air: Asia? no way, aside in far off areas.
Atma would not suggesting any monastery because Nyom tends to "housholders and traders" and will therefore find enough offers.

Let my person hand over an auspicious guide, and it would be good to value the gift from the first moment like the key to freedom: Into the Stream: A Study Guide on the First Stage of Awakening

Once Nyom has reached a state that tends toward renouncing, toward the Sangha, monks are allowed to help a little in more wordly issues their "children".

May Nyom without Name and face feel always welcome if question arises, to nurish on some Dhamma, here and there, and to make use of all given possibilities to make merits here around.

The sooner he is able to abound modern consumer attitudes and get known his wealth and the bliss of giving and not increasing debts, the sooner Nyom does no more mistaken the Sangha, monks, as social institution but as a field of merits if not falling and dealing with such, the sooner he will find the ways in to admirable friends and guides toward liberation.

Take, better give, yourself the required time when the normal tendencies look after "easy" ways.

Mudita

Assuming that Nyom is possible of Chinese (speaking) origin.

Bhante Somkan, from Wat Bodum came to my mind, just this morning. He must be already a highranking monk, speaks Chinese and walks very Bodhisatta. He might be reachable via Facebook and Upasika Sophorn (who, by the way, is also a high qualified language teaching "Nomad", lives this ways) possible has still the account adress. It would be good if showing face and name.
He may also know places to dwell and will be connected to other monks all over the country.

City-monks, or most young, actually use the holly life to study for their later life and usually also pay their teachers and study. Business could be made here as well. From a ethical point, my person would not even encourage teaching worldly things for free except in special cases (engage in corruption). To teach english for Dhamma purpose Nyom might not be fit, knowing less in Dhamma.

Nyom could also try to get in contact with the Chinese/Taiwan Nunnery Maha Panna Foundation who would have surely best infrastructure and have a lot of lay people from China, Taiwan doing service in their monasteries. Also some young males who study in Phnom Penh.

Those might be some anchors for the food Nyom is searching for.

In regard of internet requirements possible good to contact http://www.cellcard.com.kh/en/ or other provider in regard of coverage.

Upasak Vithou might be able to help with more physical networks as working in this field, but not sure if he installs also small and privat Networks. If finding ways to appear more interested and open, other lay people here may also be able to help in regard of dwelling. Once appearing worthy for sacrifices and not just after gain, serious interested, once there is some Nissaya traceable (actually there is, since very less find their ways here), things may run it's causes.

Many other here are also language students or teacher. If tending toward Sri Lanka, Nyom Mohan Gnanathilake might help with infos.
