If a Person Should Perform a Meritorious Act...

First Formal Talk in Thai
(past lives excluded)

Here's me giving a talk on the Dhamma in Thai in the main hall at Wat Doi Suthep. My first time ever giving a formal talk in Thai (past lives excluded), it was on goodness. I gave the Dhammapaada verse # 118 as the introduction:

"If a person should perform a meritorious act,
he should do it again and again;
he should be pleased therin,
because happiness is the accumulation of goodness."

I didn't record it, but it turned out quite well (meaning I might have to give another one some day!) I did record a similar talk given in English. It's here.
