"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....

sadhu! your efforts will help many beings. puja, befriend
when walking say to yourself "i am walking" when riding in a car say to yourself "i am sitting in a seat riding in a car" make sure to be concious of the statement, use your intelligence to simply comprehend it and in my experience this is the best way to be mindful in daily life.
