Theravāda in the 21st century - modern applications of ancient wisdom
LOL. Good to know that story. I never knew that about them thinking it was illegal. I guess it makes sense, considering the laws here about beggars, but yes as you said, they aren't begging. And yes, Ajahn asked me to show Trevor a copy of Fearless Mountain. It is a good video for beginners seeking basic information.

Rain soddens what is kept wrapped up,
But never soddens what is open;
Uncover, then, what is concealed,
Lest it be soddened by the rain.

Both formerly, monks, and now, it is just suffering that I make known and the ending of suffering.

What an enlightening piece of writing! It’s so wonderful to see laymen recognizing a monk on the street and giving appropriately!
