"He, the Blessed One, is indeed the Noble Lord, the Perfectly Enlightened One;
He is impeccable in conduct and understanding, the Serene One, the Knower of the Worlds;
He trains perfectly those who wish to be trained; he is Teacher of gods and men; he is Awake and Holy. "

"The Dhamma is well-expounded by the Blessed One,
Apparent here and now, timeless, encouraging investigation,
Leading to liberation, to be experienced individually by the wise. "

It seems like UK has a good connection with Theravada. Just by look of it how they support that tradition. I think it's important for you to find a place where there's support for you to continue, well, whatever you're doing. I know a handful of monastics, who live in West and they have had to get a job. One of them is Lama. Monks and nuns here don't have same kind culture of support what is so amazingly still alive in Asia.

You're not coming back to Finland? Here's already one Theravada monk living permanently. I think he's staying about 5km where I live.

As per request by the op,this thread is now locked.
“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.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

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