He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'
(Jhana Sutta - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)

The Path of Dhamma

The path of Dhamma is no picnic . It is a strenuous march steeply up the hill . If all the comrades desert you , Walk alone ! Walk alone ! with all the Thrill !!

Very interesting thread, just spent my morning lecture reading through it slowly.

As an outsider, I agree with a former poster that says if we don't know the full story we shouldn't be so quick to criticise. However, there would have been nothing to stop the monks swapping seats with the elderly, the very tall or anyone else who has issues with economy seats. Not sure if this allowed by airline rules however. :)
