Thank you Ven. Appicchato, always good to know what is permissible. Have net, will travel.

Great to hear from you, Bhante. Feel better.
"The serene and peaceful mind is the true epitome of human achievement."-- Ajahn Chah, Living Dhamma

"To reach beyond fear and danger we must sharpen and widen our vision. We have to pierce through the deceptions that lull us into a comfortable complacency, to take a straight look down into the depths of our existence, without turning away uneasily or running after distractions." -- Bhikkhu Bodhi

Good to see you here again bhante.
He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'
(Jhana Sutta - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)

Hi all,

Thanks again for your good wishes. Today I shall be going to another hospital for minor surgery and hope to be back here early next week.

Best wishes,
Dhammanando Bhikkhu

Greetings bhante,

I hope you're doing well and bearing up against all those pokes, prods and jabs.

Metta,
Retro. :)
"When we transcend one level of truth, the new level becomes what is true for us. The previous one is now false. What one experiences may not be what is experienced by the world in general, but that may well be truer. (Ven. Nanananda)

“I hope, Anuruddha, that you are all living in concord, with mutual appreciation, without disputing, blending like milk and water, viewing each other with kindly eyes.” (MN 31)

Never again...

Thanks for the offer, but I don't think I'm in need of anything at the moment. (At least not unless you want to carry me about on your shoulders).

Best wishes,

Yes, I'm limping but living. I hope your recovery is proceeding well too.

Please get well soon.

Hi Andrew,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel and thanks for your kind wishes. I've actually been well for over a week now.

Some months ago I reverted to using my old Icelandic e-mail account as it has better spam control than the Thai one:
