An audio recording “Protection in Buddhist Perspective” by Phra Ajaan Keng

Propagation of the Dhamma to all who care and wish to listen is indeed a noble deed. The Buddha travelled throughout his 45 years of ministry and preached His Dhamma wherever and whenever possible. “The Buddha, unlike most other teachers, did not use only His monastery or His auditorium for teaching. The Buddha taught His disciples mostly in the open air. The Buddha’s class-rooms were very public parks, cemeteries, rock-slabs, sandy stretches, shade of trees, fields, roads and the forest.” (“The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived, The Supreme Buddha” by Venerable Weragoda Sarada Maha Thero).


Following the footsteps of the Buddha Phra Ajhaan Keng travelled to Mangala Vihara (Buddhist Temple) and delivered his talk at Chew Quee Neo Hall.

The Mangala Vihara Dhamma Fellowship was grateful to Phra Ajaan Keng who graciously accepted an invitation and delivered a Dhamma talk on March 5th 2018 at the Chew Quee Neo Hall. This talk, an event organised by the Buddhism in Daily Life under its Dhamma Talk series, was his second appearance. As with his any other talks, it attracted the usual large turnout with a crowd that filled to the brim of the hall at the Mangala Vihara (Buddhist Temple).


The usual full house capacity crowd.

The session kick started with a short guided meditation dawned on the issue of mindfulness, a basic theme of his talk to achieve calmness and concentration to develop wisdom for achievement for protection.

Reaching out to a larger audience and to maximise the benefits of the talk and for those who were interested but were unable to attend for whatever reasons, this audio recording is for you and also for those attendees who may wish to listen to it again.

The Gift of the Dhamma excels all other gifts. (Dhammapada 354).

The audio track was recorded with a garage-type setup equipment.

Transferring, sharing and dedication of merits to the departed ones.

The questions and answers session was well received and the happy event ended with the transferring and sharing and dedication of merits to the departed ones.

Sadhu! Sadhu! Sadhu!
