Postby alan... » Fri Jan 04, 2013 6:15 am

there are no temples near me and travel is out of the question until i become rich for no reason someday :tongue:

there has to be some way i can find one remotely, online, or heck i'd even settle for writing letters like in ancient times!

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

What city and country are you in? (if you are in a city).
Then,
saturated with joy,
you will put an end to suffering and stress.

You can submit questions to his YouTube Channel:

His video did helped me a lot and i'm sure he qualified as a good online Theravada teacher even though i find the way he talk a little boring(because i got spoilt by Ajahn Brahm's stupid jokes).
