  Normality 平常心

  Luangpor Teeana  隆波田禅师 著


  Luangpor Teean (1911 – 1988) was one of the most remarkable teachers of Buddhist practice to appear in Asia in modern times. His teaching issued very directly from his own experience, intensely personal and original.

  Not a scholar nor academic, but a simple man who spoke very frankly about his experiences. His method of meditation employs simple hand and arm movements as a way to increase awareness. If you are searching for ways to calm a busy mind, Luangpor Teean’s gentle teaching will guide the way.




  Part 1, 2, 3 and the Conclusion, are translations from the book ‘Plik Lok – Neu–a Kwahm Kit’ (Turn Over The World – Beyond Thought). Part 4 and the Supplement is a translation from the book ‘Pokati’ (Normality).

  第1, 2, 3篇和结论是依泰文的"Plik Lok – Neu–a Kwahm Kit (Turn Over The World – Beyond Thought) "一书翻译为英文。第4篇及补充是依泰文的"Pokati (Normality)"一书翻译为英文。中文则是依英文版翻译。


  The way Luangpor Teean teaches differs somewhat from other teachings because he speaks directly from his experiences. Luangpor Teean couldn’t read or write (nor speak central-Thai, only the Lao-dialect), until twelve or thirteen years before he died. Because of this lack of academic knowledge, his words don’t always correspond to the accepted interpretations of those words.


  One who is attached to conservative explanations, will find this unacceptable; but someone with an open mind, concerned about what is behind the words, can step over rigid views about what things mean. For example, the four Jhanas are explained in terms of the four stages of enlightenment, and ‘seeing the Tathagata’ as seeing oneself.


  Some of these points could be seen as ‘ready wit’ (Pali – patibhana), and at the same time, their meaning recognized. Other things need a mature attitude of not fussing about definitions, but sincerely opening up to what Luangpor is trying to convey.


  It is unlikely that it will escape the reader’s attention that Luangpor Teean was a simple man who spoke very frankly about his experiences, and the reason he did so seems rather obvious. With confidence one is liable to open up the mind more and come closer to what Luangpor is pointing to.


  To have an open mind is exactly what awareness is about; to receive anything that appears or occurs in the present whether they are sensations due to movements, breathing, the eyes blinking, the knee resting on the floor, a breeze touching the skin or even sound and visual phenomena. We hear and see them in the present, don’t we? As long as the mind doesn’t proliferate, all of this can be used as more objects of awareness. They are not obstacles.


  That’s a different attitude then training in concentration, where the mind is narrowed down to one point. But Samadhi is the establishing of the mind; and we can establish the mind in awareness every second of the day because movements, as well as this practice, are natural.
