I bet he's just bunked off for a facial and a manicure!

Bhante, please return to good health speedily and completely.

My Italian grandfather had recurring bouts of malaria.... It's actually really unpleasant.

Hope all will be good with you soon..... :namaste:

Bhante, I hope you will get well soon.

May you be free from physical sufferings.
May you be free from mental sufferings.
May you be healthy and happy.


The temple that Bhante lives in do not kill mosquitos, that's why there's malaria is it? Can they do anything about it?

Anyone who knows Bhante personally, please update us on Bhante's health situation. Thank you! :namaste:

Dear Venerable,
get better soon.
My grandfather has recurrences from Malaria, too, from time to time and I know it is quite unpleasant.

The people from here knowing him for some time now, I suppose the Venerable has sufficient supporters to have access to a doctor and/or medicine?
I am sure he has, but just to make sure...

Greetings everyone,

The latest update we've received about bhante...

Just a short report on my visit to Phra Robert (as I've called him for almost
twenty years). His malaria has subsided but another problem has emerged. His
right foot is swollen and feverishly infected,rendering him bed-ridden. Thus he
remains in the hospital under observation. Doctors have conducted various tests but no results yet. He will contact me by phone when he knows and I will pass on the information.

That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”

May he recover quickly.

The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah

Greetings,

Latest update.....

One final update on Dhammanando's condition. He was diagnosed with cellulitis,
an inflammation and swelling of tissue in, in his case, the right foot. The
good news is that an antibiotic drip has brought the situation under control,
and the inflammation is being slowly reduced, though he still can't walk. He
will be in hospital through the weekend but will be returning to Wat Ben early
next week. Then he will be able to resume moderating duties.
He also wanted me to thank you and the other members of Dhamma Wheel for your
good wishes.


It is excellent to hear bhante is bearing up.
