Get the wanting out of waiting

What does womanhood matter at all, when the mind is concentrated well, when knowledge flows on steadily as one sees correctly into Dhamma. One to whom it might occur, ‘I am a woman’ or ‘I am a man’ or ‘I’m anything at all’ is fit for Mara to address. – SN 5.2

If they take what's yours, tell yourself that you're making it a gift.
Otherwise there will be no end to the animosity. - Ajahn Fuang Jotiko

Just curious, Bhante Thanavuddho, how is it you have access to the internet? I thought WPN was quite strict about not accessing the Net, more so for young monks.

He trains perfectly those who wish to be trained; he is Teacher of gods and men; he is Awake and Holy. "

Leading to liberation, to be experienced individually by the wise. "

I really enjoyed this documentary and I'm happy for you, bhante!

Do you know if WMJ is still accepting westerners for ordination?
