I am currently all upset and sad that my rotten old car is dying, after costing me heaps of money in repairs.
I may as well have piled up a big pile of cash, and set fire to it all.
So anyway, I am looking online for a new car, and up comes the perfect vehicle, at a good price. Then I look again at the photos... isn't that Bodhivana monastery in the background? Yes! I realise it is owned by Ajahn Brahm's monastery, one of my favourite monasteries!
That's a car with good... um, carma.
I just had to say it.
Weird coincidence. My car dies today, the monastery car is listed today, from a monastery I plan to stay at, or even perhaps ordain at.
So I'll go see it this weekend and if it looks good, I'll own an ex-monkmobile.
And if this monastery car dies, I can console myself with the thought that the purchase price was basically dana for Bodhivana Monastery.
