At Last, the Truth Revealed”

At Last, the Truth Revealed”

“At Last, the Truth Revealed”
Words from Master

Those who had practiced concentration meditation in the past lives, in this life, when the wisdom is opened up and elevated to Techo Vipassana, which is the practice that focuses on the inner mind to burn kilesa, they can see the dimensions in which those who have never uttermost practiced cannot reach and clearly understand the ways of temptation.

The progress of Phra Amorn’s practice is an experience that I would like the students to read and then print out to remind yourselves of the danger of being deceived by kilesa and entering the dangerous zone. This is the practicing experience that I want the students to know and understand the cruel ways of kilesa by themselves. Even if I warn the students who are losing ground, and those who are becoming the victims, it would be hard for them to believe because they are swallowed up. When I give too many warnings, they turn against me with accusation in many different ways. Thus, I have to let go of them. However, if those who have this experience are relatively new students, not having been close to our Dhamma path before, I believe that it may cause senior students to look back the way their Dhamma virtue has been robbed.

The experience of access in all dimensions, both spiritually and intellectually, is explained in a way that helps lighten my teaching work. And I would like to have this happen more often, so it can help conserve my energy.

“At last, the truth revealed.” … This truth has already been revealed to the venerable monk, especially the truth about an insult to the teacher. How will it appear to other students? That depends on the strength of their merit to overcome kilesa in their mind so they will read it. I wish that the students who used to slander and went against me, and were ungrateful to me will have a chance to read. If they are still fortunate then there is the opportunity to correct themselves, to preserve their souls, not mine. But I only fear that when they see the article, kilesa in their mind will be rampant, and they will refuse to see which is not the norm of the practitioner. If so, they will be hopeless.

“I am Phra Amorn Kunawuttho (Phrommin), ordained as a novice on April 25, 1992, as an obligation to my mother who passed away from heart disease. I intended to be in the monkhood for only 7 days, but the relatives asked me to stay for 100 days then to disrobe. But after 100 days, it was Buddhist Lent, and I could not leave the monkhood since the northern people considered it not auspicious to leave the order, so I stayed. During the years, I learned the Doctrine and it took me three years to be a graduate of Dhamma studies, Dhamma graduate and Dhamma scholar.

Until I was 20 years old, I was ordained as a monk on March 13, 1995, with a grand ordination ceremony in the district. Until now, I have been ordained for 25 years. During the time, I was appointed to be the Abbot and secretary of the Sub-District Head with a lot of responsibilities until I got bored with the way it was, so I decided to do pilgrimage of the Dhamma practice for the peace of mind. Then I got to be at Wat Phra That Chang Hin from 2004, which is in the very natural forest mountain, also called Doi Hua Ngom or Doi Duan since it looks like a crouching elephant. It is very beautiful with natural scenery of rice fields on both sides of the temple, suitable to my temperament. At first, I prayed and translated the mantra as the way to hold the mind. Then I practiced many meditation methods, but none of them was right for me. Until later, I met a white-robed layperson who taught me the method of Kasina meditation to hold the mind. I successfully learned the practice which is one
Getting to know Techo Vipassana

In 2015, Phra Varanont Nuthat or Luang Pee Vit brought me the books “Awaken from Madness”, “The Unique Dhamma in the Mid Buddhist Era” and “Techo Vipassana…Open the Door to Nirvana” written and published by Master Acharavadee Wongsakon, Vipassana Master of Techo Vipassana. When I first saw them, it was very striking and I had faith on them. When I lifted these books, there was a vibrating energy, terrifying me like never before. After I read them, I had a lot of faith. However, I was afraid to start the practice although there were other monks attending the course. Until all those monks disrobed and there was only me left at the temple, I still practiced the same method of Kasina meditation. Throughout that time, Luang Pee Vit had regularly persuaded me to attend Techo Vipassana course but I was so stubborn and refused to go, in spite of my faith in the path. Every time I read these books, I felt terrified and got goose bumps. (Kilesa held me back because they were afraid of the practice.)

With the good wishes of Luang Pee Vit who is a true and close friend and never gave up in persuading me, he came to visit me in December 2019 and persuaded me again to attend the course. Being considerate of his kind-hearted, I decided to attend the course in February 2020, which also fell on Makha Bucha Day. There was a patron, Khun Manoon, who drove me, with two other practitioners, Khun Sai and Khun Pensri Phuma. We went to visit Lan Hin Paa Moak first. Venerable Luang Por Sanchai Jittapalo kindly gave us a very warm welcome. It was really great to be closed to him. Later, we made a trip to Kaeng Khoi to attend the course.

On the first day that I declared the acceptance of the meditation instruction from Master Acharavadee Wongsakon, the fire element in my body ignited immediately. The focused point at my palms was extremely hot, spreading all over the body. I had a vision of the fire element that vastly burned the towns, forests and mountains of kilesa. There were fire falling down like rain and the wind of fire (like Tornado), both of which burned down the homes of kilesa and sankhara. This was explained by Master during the meditation check.

In my mind, I saw three dragon fires swallowing the dense iron mesh that spread over the world. I also saw Somdej Phra Puttajarn Toh, Luang Pu Thuat and Master sitting on the crystal lotus platform at the middle of the dragon’s tail. All joined forces to burn with fire element. Master told me during the meditation check that it was electromagnetic field from the internet that is spreading over the universe. As a result, most people are living in obsession, having no mindfulness, indulging in all kinds of pleasure and temptation by constantly staring at their mobile phones.

Master said that to destroy all sankhara and karmic consequences, we have to destroy this iron mesh or electromagnetic field first. But it is extremely difficult for a person to do that if he does not have a firm mind to focus at the focal point. On the last day of the course, Master led us share the loving-kindness and chant Bojjhangaparitta Gatha for 7 times to help relieve the spread of Covid19 around the world. Master also chanted Maha-karuniko Gatha which was so melodious. At that time, I had a vision of the Great Wall of China and a great serpent or black dragon that was very furious and blew the black poisonous smoke all over. But with Master’s compassion, there was a giant satellite dish radiating bright and powerful green light that could calm down the great serpent. It was Master’s virtuous power that made him crawl back to his cave.

While I was waiting for Khun Prakot to send me to the bus station, I meditated. Then an elegant man appeared in my mind. I knew that he was a samurai warrior. He said to me with forceful voice that “You are so weak, just like your mother. What are you afraid of? Be firm. Stay focused. Don’t be scared of anything”… At that moment, tears came to my eyes as I realized that the man was my father.

After that course, I continued to practice every day. It is the duty according to Master whom I highly respect. With continuing practice, I feel my body and mind so light. Anger, hatred, jealousy, desire and restlessness in my mind have decreased in a way that I never felt before. During the time I seriously trained my mind, Luang Pee Puk from Lan Hin Paa Moak came to stay in the temple for over two months in order to guide me. After that, Luang Pee Vit also called me to give advice and support me all the time. Then, he encouraged me to attend the course again.

In the course of June 29, 2020, after I declared the acceptance of the meditation instruction from Master on July 1, I put my palms together, focused at the focal point by staying firm, knowing and being equanimous, all with mindfulness. Then there was a powerful energy flowing straight to my mind. It was a bright and large volume of energy covered with lots of kilesa, creating electrical shock all over and I heard wailing voices in my mind, “Our base is gone. Hurry up! Stop him. Don’t let him see us.”
However, with complete mindfulness and concentration power, the fire element had burned a lot of them. I heard the leader of kilesa saying loudly, “The only way to stop him is to make him insult his teacher. That is the grave sin to block him.”

With my firm mind and equanimity, knowing, not resisting, not rejecting and not following the emotions of kilesa, I saw the troops of samurai and Nezha the deities riding on dragon fires, rushing in and smashing all kilesa. In the meditation check with Master, she said, “This mind is still so much tainted. Keep focusing, be firm and know it as it is. Whenever your mind starts to insult your teacher, repeat the words Buddham Saranam Gacchami with faster speed than your breath.” When I followed this advice, all kilesa with unpleasant feelings got out of my mind.

I felt hurt at my heart very much and the thoughts still lingered in my mind. Then, that state of mind flowed into my palms and the current of kilesa were burned down. I felt so light and comfortable. During lunch break, I had my mind concentrated at my nose tip so that it would not be distracted. In my mind, I saw Master sitting on a fire ball and her body was also a fire, helping burn and destroy darkness in my mind.

On the 2nd day, my mind showed the picture of Master together with the samurai warriors cutting me with their swords into two parts while I was sitting. And when my body combined together, I was cut again and beheaded with blood spreading all over. Then my body joined again and I sat in a crystal ball. Master and my father who was a samurai unified in one and got through that crystal ball and through my mind. After that, my mind that was so bright like as a big lamp turned into a gold Bodhi tree. This caused me shaking while I still put my palms together. After that, Master gave the sermon about Ādittapariyāya Sutta, explaining the heat of eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body and mind, and Ovadapatimokkha or the principle of Buddha’s teaching.

I listened to Master’s teaching with unwavering mind. I listened without any consideration, just listened with my adoration and respect. I saw bright energy current from her flowing straight to my mind that focused at my nose tip. That energy purified my mind amazingly until my body shook while I was sitting. Suddenly, I saw the gold Bodhi tree turning into a crystal Bodhi tree. My head spun until I rarely slept that night. So, I went out to pay respect to Master in front of my hut for five times. When I came back to sleep, I still could not sleep as my body shook and my head remained spinning. I felt that I amazingly love humans and animals. I love everyone equally. And I would like my friends and relatives know about this energy which had really purified my mind.

I would like to recall the great benevolence of Master Acharavadee Wongsakon. Her powerful energy is so bright like the integration of 9 suns. I realized from my mental experience that, “Master is Muni Brahmin”, the Brahmin who has illuminated wisdom of Dhamma and pure mind and should be truly respected.

Words from Master
July 19, 2020

In the old days, Thai people listened to sermon on Sunday. But currently busy laypeople think that Sunday is time to relax. So, I have decided to write a relaxing Dhamma for the day. But today is an exception as I will bring the final part of Phra Amorn’s experience for you to read. Actually, it is longer than this but I shortened it according to the space. This article can reflect the words “A student is the shadow of his teacher” as it is solid, vital and directs to Dhamma wisdom. If you read without expectation for miracle issues, you will find the miracle of wisdom that arises in your mind.
So, this Sunday I would like my students to learn modern Dhamma on Facebook to gradually develop Dhamma in your mind.

“I attained Dhamma wisdom with intensive and disciplined practice. I have utmost patience, perseverance, faithfulness and equanimity. I practice without expecting the outcome. I practice only to purify my mind from love, greed, anger and delusion that have dominated my mind and lead to suffering and ignorance which is the root cause of suffering so that my mind can be lightened until there is no more suffering.
I know things as they are, not through reading or writing. Those who attack Techo Vipassana practice, if they are writers, readers, Dhamma and Pali scholars or critics, who have never seriously practiced Vipassana meditation to have experience by themselves, they should never insult Master and Techo Vipassana. Such insult will cause them the deadliest sin and worst suffering. This is because Techo Vipassana practice does not change the content of Buddha’s teachings. The approach follows the principle of the Four Foundations of Mindfulness; i.e. mindfulness of body, mindfulness of sensations, mindfulness of consciousness and mindfulness of dhammas. The practice leads to realization of the three marks of existence; i.e. impermanence, suffering and non-self. Then the Four Noble Truths will be revealed to the mind; that is all sufferings arise from ignorance. And where is ignorance? It is inside our mind.

The principle of Techo Vipassana practice is focusing on the mind in order to see ignorance, the root cause of sufferings, and destroy it. The mind will awaken according to the ability to constantly focus with firm equanimity. Wisdom gaining from meditation practice is the great wisdom that will promptly lead to mind liberation. The wisdom resulting from studying, listening, and memorizing (knowledge that is learned from others), and the wisdom resulting from reflection (knowledge that is thought out) are external knowledge. With such knowledge, one doesn’t know and experience the mental formation or the conditioned things (sankhara) as they are. So, one could not indicate the condition of the mind at that moment.
Learning from others and contemplating are considered the state of study while knowledge resulting from meditation practice is always argued by people, who make judgement and criticize others. This is not right.

The teachings of every Buddha focus on peacefulness, both physically and spiritually, and on reaching Nirvana. They are not knowledge to be studied to gain an academic certificate, and use it to defeat and destroy others as well as those who protect Buddhism. I don’t blame studying and contemplating, but just do them in balance with practicing. Don’t let them be an obstacle to practicing the mind because it will not lead to any progress but only downfall in this cycle of birth and death eventually.

I am a practitioner who has been searching for the truth, so I asked teachers and masters who practice and teach meditation as well as monks who are my friends and religious students about Buddha’s teachings that have 84,000 Dhamma categories. In brief, they are the Eightfold Path and the Four Noble Truths. In briefer, they are precepts, meditation, wisdom. In much briefer, it is heedfulness. Everyone said it is right. Then I asked “If I will practice, how to practice? How to reach the state of heedfulness? Where are the precepts, meditation and wisdom? Which one do I have to practice first and which one the second?”
Being ashamed, they could not reply as they have never practiced. Or if they do, they just practice only a little. So I asked what would the knowledge be matter. Don’t come to me to waste your time because the only thing I know is I wish to practice to reach the enlightenment.

Through my experience in Techo Vipassana practice, Master always gives touching sermons. She teaches us in details about Ten Fetters (Samyojana), Dependent Origination (Pratityasamutpada), Five Hindrances (Panca Nivarana), Four Base Mental Qualities (Iddhipada), Four Foundations of Mindfulness (Satipatthana), and Seven factors of Awakening (Bojjhanga). Her teachings enable us to realize and understand such states as they are. I have never heard anyone teaching as deeply, touchingly, and clearly as Master does. I got goosebumps while listening to her teachings. Her voice is so powerful that it could hit my mind. I saw the wave of energy hitting my mind, making it very bright.
Those who are close to spiritual teachers must be obedient and humble. They must not behave as if they are smarter than teachers because teachers indeed have complete experience theoretically, practically, and thoroughly. Consequently, if they behave as if they are smarter than teachers, they will be dumb and stuck in the cycle of rebirth forever. Thus, do not be that one.

From my experience of Techo Vipassana practice, there is nothing complex about the practice. Master focuses only on the Four Foundations of Mindfulness and Seven Factors of Awakening which are the key principles of the practice. All suffering, sankhara, karmic retribution and kilesa lie in feelings, mind and Dhamma. And where do feelings, mind, and Dhamma lie in? They indeed lie in the body. Therefore, Techo Vipassana is to focus at the focal point in the body where the fire element is ignited to burn all kilesa, with Seven Factors of Awakening as the tool to get in. Where are Seven Factors of Awakening? All of the Seven Factors actually lie in the body because all Dhamma lies in the body, not outside the body. What I tell you, in fact, is what I have realized myself through the practice. No one has to tell me. When Seven Factors of Awakening reach the full potential, they will unite together automatically.
This will be the tremendous power uniting together in just a blink and directly hitting the focus point immediately. However, Master kindly summarizes all into three attributes: fully awareness (mindfulness), gratitude, and equanimity.

I realized the Dhamma puzzle of Venerable Somdej Toh according to the power of insights I have gained at that moment. He placed one fist on the other to signify firmness and equanimity. Through such realization, at that moment I got goosebumps all over the body and shed my tears. I said Sadhu in my mind to express the rejoicing.
In all mental conditions, once the mind has utmost equanimity, it will powerfully purify all karmic formations, cleansing all mental intoxications. Finally, all kilesa will be destroyed according to the strength of equanimity. It’s like drilling to the source of groundwater that will be certainly useful.

In Techo Vipassana Meditation Retreat, only you open your mind, not letting “prejudice” towards gender block yourself, you will certainly know the truth that is revealed to you. The Buddha said that a mind has no gender, either a buddha’s mind, a silent buddha’s mind, a bodhisattva’s mind or arahant’s mind, all are purified and bright. The only difference is their practice of perfection.
Master is truely the great Bodhisattva. No one has to tell us as we are not blind or deaf. We all know how Master has practiced till she attained the noble wisdom. Will anyone dare to practice like her? She was willing to lay down her life for the practice in order to attain the true Dhamma virtue. And then, she is really brave to reveal this Dhamma and challenge today’s society that is so blind. It is now the era of the blind who are lost in darkness. How scary it is!
I am a person who was pulled out from the darkness. I would like to refer to the words from Luang Ta Phra Maha Bua, “The paper tigers and the bookworms are useless if they do not practice and refine the mind seriously to enlighten themselves.” His words are so true. Those who have gained Dhamma insight will not insult or disparage others. But those who do that are the ones not attaining the truth. Therefore, let’s come to practice and seriously purify your mind.

While I was writing this article of experiences, I could feel the energy current of spiritual teachers that was sent to support me until it spun in my head. That’s because it was my most important course. I have supported Master in her duties to bravely protect Buddhism both in the past and present.

I would like to humbly pay respect to my teacher, Master Acharavadee Wongsakon, who is highly virtuous, with true gratefulness. May Master be in good health with greatly illuminated mind power and be the refuge for all her children in this Dhamma practice group for eternity.”
