Misadventures of a Monk

A little Introduction

Dhamma Tapasa

I am a real life Monk, affiliated to No Tribe, Religion or Society. My spiritual name is Dhamma Tapasa Viraja (Dhamma Hermit Free From Dust) given to me when I was an ordained Buddhist monk in North Thailand. My birth name is Andrew Hallas but I’m affectionately know by friends as the Monk.

Dhamma Tapasa

I am affiliated to No Monastery, No Religion, Tribe or Society, I do however wholeheartedly believe in the Buddhist teachings of Meditation, Mindfulness , Loving Kindness and Compassion as fundamental in the search for enlightenment.

My whole life has been in this pursuit and understanding of our human experience, I have now spent Thousands of Hours in Meditation and Mindfulness training from within monastery’s and meditation Centers across Europe and Asia, many intensive 3 month Vipassana rains Retreats and during my life as a Buddhist monk in Thailand. These Thousands of hours training in Meditation and Mindfulness have helped me gain great insight into my own mind and all our human consciousness, this has bought me a truly deep sense of peace and lasting tranquility for the first time in my life.

My abbot had predicted it would be in my 6th year wandering the countryside as a Thudong Monk that everything i learnt would come to fruition, Thích Nhat Hanh personally told me to stay true to my path for it leads to realisation, and this year, my 6th year wandering Europe in search, everything of life’s mysteries have revealed themselves, it is as if I just rubbed the sleep out of my eyes, for the first time in my life I have a relationship with my father and all childhood traumas cease to be of an issue, I simple let go. A truly freeing experience.

Dhamma Tapasa

I am continuously traveling or wandering the world and I spend and dedicate every ounce of effort into the pursuit of enlightenment, using the Buddha’s teachings of Meditation, Mindfulness, loving kindness & compassion as my guide.

After returning to England from my monastery in Thailand I would spend many months as a monk with a rucksack walking through England, Holland, Belgium, Luxembourg, France and into Germany. I suffered along my journey mostly from the general harsh conditions of sleeping outside under a small tarpaulin and finding somewhere safe to sleep every night, and as so I now choose the ever growing and popular Vanlife movement to fulfil my 3 basic human needs of shelter, food and medicine. My Shelter is my Van a rusty LDV Convoy I named Bee and To obtain my another two requisites I now work for my food and medicine, unlike my monk days, wether that’s gardening, selling ice creams, making jewellery or farm harvests, I do what’s needed.

During the last couple of years my wanderings have bought me a companion in a little mischievous dog I affectionately call Marley Moo. I’ve officially adopted Marley so he can have a passport and travel with me. This simple act of kindness, as well as quite a few other misdemeanours, driving as a monk and living in a van to name two, got me into a lot of trouble with the Buddhist Thai Sangha and after an intense few years of real deep soul searching and inner questioning about Buddhism, other religions, the Thai sangha, and my place as a monk in it all, I finally came to a realisation. I am a monk living the Vanlife. It was a incredibly hard and lonely time for me. It has taken me almost 3 years to finally figure out who I am, my place in the world and what I am really searching for, I finally realised my USP so to speak. I am now comfortable with myself and realise I am a completely unique real life Monk living the 21st century Vanlife movement all in the search for enlightenment, even if this has come at the cost of loosing the support of the Thai Sangha and all monetary funds.

Marley Moo, Dhamma Tapasa faithful companion

Just like any monk of any religion I live by a code of conduct or moral principles called precepts. Each precept is simple in its clarity and we can all easily follow some if not most of them to improve our own lives. I’ve lived with most of these morals for the whole of my life, even as a child. My code of conduct, moral principles I live by:

  • No killing

  • No stealing

  • No lying

  • No sexual misconduct

  • No Alcohol or Drugs

  • To eat only one meal a day

  • To practice non violence in every situation in life

  • To try to never ask for anything

  • To take only what is freely given

  • To give everything I can

I have found that working in robes, gardening or farm harvest, just isn’t practical for me anymore, and as so can be found out of robes as much as I am in robes, I choose only to wear my robes in private, while meditating or when I’m teaching mindfulness and Meditation techniques, although sometimes just sometimes I’m seen out and about in robes

Ajahn Chah become one of the most celebrated Buddhist monks and meditation master of our time. A fully enlightened master who shared his wisdom with the west. Reading his biography you will get a feel for who this master was and what this great man achieved.

Thich Nhat Hanh or Thay as he affectionately known was born in 1926 in the city of Hue in Central Vietnam. He entered the Buddhist monastic life at the age of 16 and received full ordination in 1951. In the few years they followed Thay started the school of Youth Social Service (SYSS) a Buddhist peace workers group, who would go into rural areas of Vietnam with the aim of establishing schools, healthcare clinics and rebuilding infrastructure.

By 1961 Thay has been invited to teach comparative religion at Princeton University which subsequently turned into lecturer of Buddhist philosophy at Colombia university in New York. After a few years Thay returned to Vietnam to help with the peace work undertaken by the SYSS, unfortunately during the decade between 65-75 the SYSS suffered heavy blows, Sister Chân Không, co-founder and Buddhist Nun was accused of being a communist, support dwindled until attacks on its members became frequent. Thay and sister Chân Không continued spreading non violence and non discrimination throughout these hard times, until 1975 when Thích Nhat Hanh was refused entry into Vietnam being accused by the North as helping and aiding the South and South Vietnam accusing him of helping the North.

It was in this year 1975 Thay sought solace as a political refugee in France. Gradually over time he would set up the community of Interbeing and the Plum Village Monastery in the Dordogne region of France, now home to over 150 monks and nuns. His monastery was open to monks, nuns and lay people alike, and he could be found simple tending his garden or giving lectures to hundreds of visitors. His numerous literary works include ‘peace in every step’ ‘the miracle of mindfulness’ and ‘old path white clouds’ to name just a few.

It wasn’t until 2005, and after lengthy negotiations with the Vietnamese Government, that Thich Nhat Hanh was finally allowed to revisit is homeland, and then again in 2007. After suffering a brain hemorage and undergoing extensive treatment Thay has been allowed to return to his original Monastery in Central Vietnam. He is now 93 years old and has spent his entire life selflessly helping others with kindness and compassion.

A truly extraordinary man who I have personally had the privilege to meet at his Plum Village Monastery, to sit in his presents was so calming, you didn’t feel anxious or nervous but simple and unconditionally loved. He glowed with a beautiful white light, just like the religious pictures of old. I met Thay while doing bare foot walking meditation in the snow, silently and gently I was walking around the perimeter of the monastery and around the corner came Thich Nhat Hanh doing exactly the same, a beaming smile on his face as he saw me. He motioned for me to sit next to him where he told me three things that changed my life forever. It sent me on a journey across continents in search of the truth, finally leading to my own ordination as Buddhist Monk and given the spiritual name of Dhamma Tapasa. I have visited Thay on two other occasions and each time I am blessed and humbled by this true meditation master.
