What Does MIDL Mean?

The MIDL meditator seeks to find the middle path by neither suppressing nor avoiding any experience, but rather by softening into and unifying within the experience itself.

 

 

  • MIDL = Mindfulness In Daily Life
  • The Middle Way = MIDL is also a play on words that points towards the middle balance, or ‘Middle Way’ (MIDL Way) as revealed in the first talk given by the Buddha (SN 56:11).

 

What is MIDL Meditation?

The MIDL Meditation System is a systematic Buddhist insight meditation practice based on the Satipatthana Sutta, that has been designed for daily life. The MIDL meditator seeks to find the middle path by neither suppressing nor avoiding any experience, but rather by softening into and unifying within the experience itself. This path leads to the fading of attraction and aversion towards pleasant and unpleasant feeling and a seamless integration of meditation into daily life.

A schedule of upcoming livestreams, online retreats, and virtual teachings from monastics worldwide

Pujas.live was created as a way to gather the various livestream activities of Thai Forest monasteries that popped up during the COVID-19 pandemic. The intention is to support a more communal experience of participating in livestreams (remotely), and to collect livestreams in one place, so you can find live Dhamma on youtube without getting distracted by cat videos.

Ctihodný Dhammadípa se rozhodl šířit Buddhovo poselství v Evropě. Za tímto účelem založil Buddhistické centrum Lesní klid s cílem poskytnout prostor pro studium a praxi buddhismu a dalším duchovním směrům, které souzní s buddhistickou naukou. Název pochází ze sanskrtu, jednoho z kanonickým jazyků buddhismu. Shanta Vana lze přeložit do češtiny jako lesní klid či utišený les.

Pali Sandhi is a phonetic transformation from two words into a new word. The phonemes of the neighbouring words are changed and merged. Pali Sandhi word segmentation is more challenging than Thai word segmentation because Pali is a highly inflected language. This study proposes a novel approach that predicts splitting locations by classifying the sample Sandhi words into five classes with a bidirectional long short-term memory model. We applied the classified rules to rectify the words from the splitting locations. We identified 6,345 Pali Sandhi words from Dhammapada Atthakatha. We evaluated the performance of our proposed model on the basis of the accuracy of the splitting locations and compared the results with the dataset. Results showed that 92.20% of the splitting locations were correct, 1.10% of the Pali Sandhi words were predicted as non-splitting location words and 5.83% were not matched with the answers (incomplete segmentation).

Ajahn Chah (Phra Bodhinyana Thera) was one of the meditation teachers in the Thai forest tradition of Theravada Buddhism. He established many branch monasteries in Thailand and his Western disciples have carried the tradition to Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and America.
