The International Buddhist Meditation Centre was founded over a decade ago with the objectives of enabling English-speaking people to find out about Buddhist meditation and provide information about Buddhism in Thailand. Information about places to learn and practice meditation is available to visitors.
Details: On the 2nd and 4th Saturday of every month there is a talk and guided meditation from 3pm to 5pm by Pandit Bhikkhu or Phra Somphong. The event is though subject to cancellation and it is best to call first to ensure it will be running on the Saturday you want to go.
How to get there: One of the easiest ways to Wat Mahathat is boat. Stop off at Chang Pier and its between Silpakorn University and the Thammasat University. If you want to go by taxi the fare from the city centre will be around 60-70 Baht.
The following buses will get you there:
Bus number: 1, 3, 7, 9, 15, 25, 30, 32, 33, 39, 43, 44, 47, 53, 59, 60, 64, 65, 70, 80, 82, 91, 203, 70, 203, 501, 506, 507, 508, 512, 523, 533, 538
