March 22 –

Today is our full rest and relaxation day. Our meeting time in the morning was 9 o’clock, so I slept until 9. After meeting, we decided that instead of being a whole group, we would like to split into groups for free time, so we split in to groups of 4 and 5. My group was quite boring, we stayed at the hostel until lunch time, and then went to have Burger King after that. At 1, we went to the monk chat to learn about the monks culture and life. The Buddhist monks have four top rules:

  1. No killing
  2. No stealing
  3. No sex
  4. No lying

Along with these rules, they believed that the mind is what controls your body and emotion, so by meditating, you can control yourself to always stay in a happy state. After that, we had free time again, where we decided to stay at the hostel to relax. My questions of the day was “if you see a door, would you push or pull” and “to what extent do you believe in the Buddhist idea of your mind being the most important thing.”
