Non-issue :group:

"For a disciple who has conviction in the Teacher's message & lives to penetrate it, what accords with the Dhamma is this:
'The Blessed One is the Teacher, I am a disciple. He is the one who knows, not I." - MN. 70 Kitagiri Sutta

I met Most.Ven.Gnanadipa(A Dannish monk who is living alone in deep forests for more than two decades) yesterday in a deep forest near Kiwulawadiya,(Knucles range)Laggala,Sri lanka.It was a very inspiring moment for me.I had a rare chance to speak with him for about 15minutes.
An Indonesian forest monk also joined with me for the long journey in the forest with beautiful streams,big trees etc....
