Bhikkhu Dhammanando

I hope he is okay. I heard that he is in a Satipatthana retreat.

When I read the thread about Bhikkhu Bhuddhadasa, I really wish Dhammanando Bhikkhu was around :-)

Hello Andrew,

Venerable Dhammanando is on the Rains Retreat (Vassa). Vassa is a three-month annual retreat observed by Theravada monks and nuns. It begins on the day after the full moon day of the eighth lunar month of the common Buddhist calendar, which usually falls in July. The retreat ends on the 15th day of the waxing moon of the eleventh lunar month, usually in October.
During Vassa, monks and nuns remain inside monasteries and temple grounds, devoting their time to intensive meditation and study.
He should be back in early October.

Yes, Dhammanando is certainly missed. His return is definitely anticipated.
