Didn't we do this a year ago?

Be that as it may, happy birthday, Bhante.

Happy Birthday!

Happy birthday bhante.

Metta,
Retro. :)
If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)
