Isn't David Snyder an MD?


Oh I guess Ph.D doesn't mean "physical D" but philology...

Hi Anna,

No, I'm a Ph.D.(philosophy and sociology). As Randy Pausch would say, "I'm a doctor but not the type that helps people." :D

On a more serious note, I think it is difficult, perhaps impossible to acquire prescription drugs for someone else in the U.S. without a prescription.

Dr Snyder, I am actually looking to have the prescription written to myself. I will then buy and ship the medicine to Bhante Samahita. There actually is a prescription from a Sri Lankan Doctor, it's just that the medicine isnt available there.

Greetings,

Update received via Bhikkhu Samahita's Facebook....

Medicine Mission Complete!
Happily was the remaining preventive medicine delivered here today by DHL as a kind donation from Mrs. Eveline Lee of Singapore assisted by Mr. Ponnusamy Stalin of India. Sadhu! Well done by both of these fine friends. No more medicine is thus needed now. Thanx again for the overwelmingly positive response from many good people here and there. Support for the continued Dhamma-Sharing work is still & always welcome here: http://What-Buddha-Said.net/

Metta,

Great news, merit for all of us! And health for the bhikkhu!
It made me wonder, what would a Sri Lankan bhikkhu do in the same situation, without such access to supporters who can buy and send from overseas a pretty expensive medicine?
Then,
saturated with joy,
you will put an end to suffering and stress.

Great news :D

Great news!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
