What l ike about that is that they have the Right view, that such a thing as karma exists and that that there are spiritually superior beings among the bikkhu sangha who as a collective are worthy of respect. Here are people who's belief in karma is not limited to belief but spills over into action, suggesting a strong Right view capable of giving rise to the rest of the Noble eightfold path.

It makes me sad that we in the so called enlightened West, have such a difficult time accepting that enlightenment is possible - and find it difficult to accept that there might be enlightened people/monks/individuals in this world -and that it is possible for us to be the same.

Hello,

The temporary ordination program conducted by Buddhistcc is a very good one. It is carried on at the Dekanduwala meditation centre which is in Horana. It is not a meditation retreat but an over all training in dhamma which runs according to a daily schedule consisting of studies, meditation, and other day to day chores of novice monks.

In fact i went through this program in 2005 and it was one of the happiest periods of my life. They also conduct a one year long tripitaka training program for which also you will have to get ordained.

metta,

chan.
