It would be great to have another portuguese bhikkhu. I really hope you can make it.
If you make it, announce it here on DW, please.
As for me, I have anagarika aspirations. But not monastic aspirations. If my father gets sick, I will probably take care of him. I wouldn't want to lie at my hypothetical ordination ceremony, saying it's for life, when I knew it wouldn't be. It's not the whole story, but the rest is not suitable to discuss in a public forum.
Anyway, happy birthday, "carago"!
And the Blessed One addressed the bhikkhus, saying: "Behold now, bhikkhus, I exhort you: All compounded things are subject to vanish. Strive with earnestness!"
