Excellent! Will you be attending the talk? If so, I'd be interested to hear what he talks about and/or seeing any photos. I lived nearby in Santa Monica but now I'm back full-time in Las Vegas.

It was an amazing talk. Ven. Bodhi spoke on how we, as Buddhists, should not only fight greed, hatred, and delusion in ourselves but also in the greater society. His emphasis was to use compassion not only as a means of inner tranquility but also as a spur towards acts of goodness. I pray that the vihara posts an audio recording on their website. Many members if the Bhikkuni sangha were at the temple as well, as tomorrow there will be a Bhikkuni ordination. I believe Ven. Bodhi will be there tomorrow as well.

Thanks for that report. Good to hear and good to see that these bhikkhuni ordinations are becoming more frequent.

Thanks Moth!
I wish I was there.
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.
