I don't think the ven. Gavesako meant literally "five minutes"
but just a relatively short timespan - his point of view might be too short to really get to know this place, people, traditions and ways of practice. I stayed as a pahkow for approx. 3 months ... it felt like 15 minutes. And I personally do not think I'd be able to give a balanced and just report let alone writing a book. Therefor I never really sayed anything like this: WPN is like this!
Get the wanting out of waiting

If they take what's yours, tell yourself that you're making it a gift.
Otherwise there will be no end to the animosity. - Ajahn Fuang Jotiko
